    Default openSUS 13.1 Gnome Suspend How To - Solved.

    Hi all,

    Just putting this up there cause it was really hard for me to search via Google and here to figure out what happened to the Suspend option in Gnome. Found the solution to a reply in bugzilla. I got extremely partial to it over the past several months when I realized my new hardware worked great with it.


    To suspend you just need to hoover over the status menu (top right power & volume and stuff) and hold down the alt key. The power option button will turn into a "pause" symbol. Then just click on it. It is not intuitive and does not even have a pop up descriptor, but it works and I'm mostly happy again.

    Hope the title comes up in searches better then previous ones and saves a lot of folks form headaches.

    Bill

    By hiding suspend, GNOME developers are probably encouraging people to
    turn off machines instead of suspending
