To get the 'Hibernate' option type the following command in the terminal >>
If your PC succeed in going to Hibernate mode and you have no problem waking it up, then you know your PC supports the Hibernate feature. Then again in the terminal type/copy-paste >>
sudo nano /etc/polkit-1/localauthority/50-local.d/com.ubuntu.desktop.pkla
then add the following:
[Re-enable hibernate by default] Identity=unix-user:* Action=org.freedesktop.upower.hibernate ResultActive=yes
Save (Ctrl + o) and exit (Ctrl + x).
Restart the PC. The Hibernate option should be visible under the 'Shut Down' dropdown.
