This question already has an answer here:

How do I enable the hibernate option. Editing hibernate.pkla doesn't work.

I did the following -

$ sudo gedit /var/lib/polkit-1/localauthority/50-local.d/hibernate.pkla
[Enable Hibernate]
Identity=unix-user:*
Action=org.freedesktop.upower.hibernate
ResultActive=yes

and restarted, but nothing happens.

You're done.
