Systemctl suspend permission error

It looks like it works:

$ journalctl -f

Butt it doesn’t:

$ systemctl suspend
Call to Suspend failed: Access denied

URC I’m denser than dense! It gave no errors that it couldn’t unmask it previously, but it obviously couldn’t…

Yeah was just about to quote that…

Well, that seemed to have done the trick. Again, something obvious. But hard to know kind of thing, because I didn’t see any errors…

But it just teaches me, again, not to assume, although I didn’t here - I pre sumed based on what I saw…

Nevertheless, I’m glad it was something small. Thanks everyone!

The answer was awarded to @zbe because it’s with his command I saw the error…
