Question Hibernate in KDE on FC 6?

Hi there,
I'm still new to linux, and I wanted to ask you guys something regarding FC6.
Well, I just wanted to know if there was some way to get the hibernate option in the KDE environment. (I cant get the hibernate option while shutting down from KDE, but it works rather well from GNOME)

Can anyone please help?

login as root
start ked
bring up KDE Control Center
ckick on Session Manager
turn on Confirm logout
turn on Offer shutdown Options
ckick on apply
that may do it for you

I don't have software suspend installed
so it may show up as an opption in the session manager menu for you
or it may show up when you go to logoff

but this is where you would set it as an option

Hi Rob,
Thanks for the input. But then those options were already checked when I saw them.
However, I've solved the problem by installing Kpowersave. I gives me the option to suspend the system when I want to.
Thank you anyway.


fedora, hibernate, hibernation
