Hibernation on Laptop


i have just installed Manjaro Gnome version but i have one problem my laptop does not hibernate good enough.

first in the power settings i can pause my laptop, restart, turn off and log out but there is no hibernate option.

second if i close the lid of my laptop my laptop does not automatically go to hibernate mode after a while but just stays in suspend mode and so the battery drains in a couple of hours.

third i have to go in the settings menu to change on/off button to hibernate my laptop but when i return to my laptop after it went into hibernation mode my laptop does not recognize my ethernet connection anymore and so i have to enable my wifi to get an internet connection again.

so my question is how can i enable my laptop to go automatically into hibernation mode after a while when i close my lid and when i return to my laptop how can i have ethernet connection recognized by my laptop?

kind regards

provide system information - see the introductory threads on how to request assistance
inxi -Fazy
could be a start

Hibernation requires a swap file or a swap partition (the system state is written to it and reloaded from there).
It also requires a bit of configuration of the initial RAM disk and of the boot loader - so that the saved (to swap) state can be found and loaded and used.

Without that, only suspend is possible.

sorry im not that familiar with all the jargon where are the introductory threads and what is inxi -Fazy and how can i provide system information?

… no, I’m not going to answer that :man_shrugging: - there is a search function and you could read some threads …

@Mirdarthos has got some template ready and will likely post it here :wink:

Hi @NSS,

In order for us, or anyone for that matter, to be able to provide assistance, more information is necessary. To that end, please see:

Please also note and heed: Forum Rules - Manjaro

Hope you manage!

:bangbang: Tip: :bangbang:

To provide terminal output, copy the text you wish to share, and paste it here, surrounded by three (3) backticks, a.k.a grave accents. Like this:

pasted text

Or three (3) tilde signs, like this:

pasted text

This will just cause it to be rendered like this:

Portaest sed
cursus nisl nisi
hendrerit ac quis
tortor sit leo commodo.

Instead of like this:

Portaest sed elementum cursus nisl nisi hendrerit ac quis sit adipiscing tortor sit leo commodo.

Alternatively, paste the text you wish to format as terminal output, select all pasted text, and click the </> button on the taskbar. This will indent the whole pasted section with one TAB, causing it to render the same way as described above.

Thereby improving legibility and making it much easier for those trying to be of assistance.

:bangbang::bangbang: Additionally

If your language isn’t English, please prepend any and all terminal commands with LC_ALL=C. For example:

LC_ALL=C bluetoothctl

This will just cause the terminal output to be in English, making it easier to understand and debug.

Please edit your post accordingly.


I’m famous!!!

Hopefully not for the wrong reasons!

im new to linux and what else should i provide?

That makes me think hibernation isn’t enabled.

For that you’ll have to look at suspend-then-hybernate, IIRC.

That, I think, is simply power management of the NIC. Which I know very little to nothing about. It might “simply” (read: magically) start working if the hibernate is sorted.

For hibernation, you’ll have to look here:


Specifically starting at

4. Hibernation

…I think

(I don’t use it, so don’t have it set up.)

There is 8 GB swap


is also present.

So: hibernation itself should work.

To try, open a terminal and issue:
systemctl hibernate
and see what happens.

If it works, it is a configuration issue with Gnome itself that causes these options not to be available to you.
I cannot help with that.

Actually, no:

The recommendation for swap is, IIRC 150% of you RAM. So according to thaat the SWAP space should be 12GB…



But, I might be wrong:


Edit #2:

Also have a look at:


(I think this might be your best bet.)

Close enough :grin:.

It’s perhaps not ideal, but if not too much swap is already used it should work
(I have 8 GB Ram and only a 4 GB swap(file) - and I just hibernated and came back successfully).

… let’s see what he gets …
perhaps Gnome itself refuses because of the minimum recommended size not being there? No idea.
But from terminal it should work nonetheless.

How much physical RAM is available in your system?

If it is greater than the amount of swap space defined (your swap partition suggests 7.45 GiB) then hibernation might not be recommended. Hibernation generally requires at least as much swap space as there is RAM in the system, for safe hibernation.

This might help focus your research. Cheers.

That was my thoughts as well, but:

From the first paragraph of your link:

Even if your swap partition is smaller than RAM, you still have a good chance of hibernating successfully.

I agree, there is a good chance that a smaller swap partition might still allow successful hibernating. It really depends on how much data is actually held in RAM at the time of hibernating.

If that RAM amount is greater than the size the swap partition (or file) can possibly hold, when written to disk, then the data held in RAM stands a good chance of being damaged or lost. It’s for this reason that adequate swap space (at least as much as system RAM) is a generally recommended rule-of-thumb if hibernation is desired.

All things considered, it’s the safest approach.

I recall a time when up to four times the capacity of available RAM was generally postulated. However, that was many years ago and times, along with the technologies we use, have changed.
Such a recommendation today would be considered ludicrous, given the amounts of RAM commonly used in newer systems.

However, even then, at least as much as system RAM was the general recommendation for hibernation.

:end pseudo-historical-swap-rave


Considering the drivers for both devices are installed, it might be related to DNS and/or gateway.

Try having only one connected at boot.

I do use hibernation with Manjaro and Gnome.

Once you’re done checking

Then download this extension and enable ‘Show hibernate button’ and also disable unused buttons like the ‘Lock’ to keep it neat.

Enjoy Manjaro Gnome.

hi i have solved everything the problem i found out was not with manjaro but with the uefi bios of my laptop which would not let my laptop hibernate thanks for the support everyone
