How do I put Ubuntu 18.04 on standby? The option appears to be gone.

(I specifically want to be able to do it though the GUI, without pressing the physical button on my computer.)

Act as if you were going to shut down the computer, but click and hold the power off symbol, it will change to a pause symbol.

Create a polkitd rule

cat /etc/polkit-1/localauthority/50-local.d/com.ubuntu.enable-hibernate.pkla 
# aktiviere hibernate
[Re-enable hibernation]
Identity=unix-user:*
Action=org.freedesktop.upower.hibernate
ResultActive=yes
