Can't suspend or hibernate


Hello everybody.

I'm using the version 13 of Slackware. I can't suspend or hibernate my OS. I need something named HAL.

Searched a bit on the net but couldn't really figure something out.
Hope you guys can help me.

I have found that it has something to do with the rights of my user account. I logged in as root and could suspend and also hibernate.
How do I have do setup my account to have enough rights?

You should probably add your user to the "power" group. The plugdev, audio, video and cdrom groups would be useful as well for other reasons. The following command would do nicely (as root):
Code:
for i in power plugdev audio video cdrom; do gpasswd -a user "$i"; done
where user is your username.

I have the same issue, can suspend and hibernate when logged in as root but not under my user account. The user account is added to the power group but still doesn't do anything. Can't figure out what else I'm missing.

T3slider, many thanks for your help. Your solution solved my problem.
After that command I had to restart my computer to be able to suspend or hibernate.

Worked for me too. I thought I could just logout and log back in but had to do a full restart. Thanks!
