Can you provide /etc/default/grub and your /etc/fstab?

I can't see anything wrong here. :man_shrugging:
I'm running the same DE (on testing) and still have all suspend options.

I also checked my Win 10 installation and suspend is available there.

Open System Settings -> Startup and Shutdown -> Session Management -> Offer shutdown options

Also check if you are using the Breath theme, with breath it could sometimes be that there is not hibernation button, you could then change to Breeze theme to verify if this is the reason.

Can you suspend from the terminal?

systemctl suspend

systemctl suspend works, but I can´t find "offer shutdown options" in System Settings.
I am using german as default language.

So findet man bei mir das Kästchen zum Aktivieren der Optionen für das Herunterfahren:

Now, I have found "Arbeitsflächensitzung".
But there is no entry "suspend".

When I login to my account, I can see a button "Suspend".

Just for the record: this is entirely irrelevant. Availability of suspend (to-disk) on one OS has no bearing on any other OS on the same machine.

This comment does not solve the problem at all.

Hope you can find the suspend setting in KDE system-settings

But at KDE system-settings --> Shortcuts --> Global Shortcuts --> Power Management --> Suspend
There is a 'suspend' there. And I also create/set a keyboard shortcut for it; easier than using power button.

Good luck.

Change kernels. Sometimes power management may be impacted differently by different kernels.

(This is less apparent in Plasma than GNOME.)

I have installed kernel 5.4. and the suspend button is not available.

Suspend or hibernation? Anyway, try going to System Settings -> Appearance -> Global Theme and apply Plasma's default Breeze one. If it's a theming issue, then you'll have your extra options in bye-bye dialog working. Of course it will reset your custom appearance settings, but that's easy to set back.

Both buttons for Suspend and Hibernation are not available in the menu
(Manjaro button -> Exit -> System) anymore.

I have set the Global Theme to "Breeze" and the two buttons (Suspend and Hibernation) do not appear.

Hier ist ein interessanter Beitrag, das mal auszuprobieren kann nicht schaden:

Außerdem, falls noch nicht geschehen, mal in der Datei


nachsehen, ob in der Zeile, die mit





Wollie´s link did not solve the problem.
