Thread: Disable hibernation ?

  1. #1

    Default Disable hibernation ?

    Hi everyone,

    I would like to know how to get rid of the hibernation option from the Kickoff (well you know this thing in the bottom left corner) menu ? I remember that it wasn't present on my old laptop but I can't find how to remove it from my desktop.

    If you don't know how to delete it, can you at least tell me how to disable it ? I'd like to avoid missclicking and putting my system under hibernation since I'm on a SSD.

    Thanks in advance

    Please always explain which version of openSUSE you use.
    And when you use a desktop (and I guess you do)_, please always explain which one (KDE, Gnome, ...)

    You really expect to much from the people here when you think they are clairvoyant.

    You're right sorry I'll pay attention to this next time.

    Well, the other thread's title (where I pointed to) is "Removing suspend/hibernate from KDE menu". Should be clear enough, I'd say...

    Also, "Kickoff" is the name of KDE's application launcher.

    And actually, the solution in that other thread should apply to all desktop environments, and even systemctl.

    This is NOT about people like you and me, who after some research could make an intelligent guess about what this all is about. It is about our members and visitors old and new, that get offered threads where the most basic information is missing or hidden somewhere.

    I know.
    But linking to a thread with "KDE" in the title (and also visible in the URL) should be clear enough, no?
    And it should be pretty clear by now in any case that the question was about KDE.

    I think it's sufficient to remind the OP once that he forgot to specify the desktop. No need to keep on picking on that...

    And again, this is actually desktop agnostic, or at least there is a desktop agnostic way to disable hibernation.

    Another way would probably be to disable swap altogether. If there's not enough swap space, hibernation will be aborted.
    But that won't remove the entry in the K-menu.

    What's the problem with hibernation when using an SSD? :-o

    ... just my guess?

    Booting on an SSD is so much quicker, sees no need for hibernation?

    Of course, I would still keep the hibernation option, myself. Even though it makes little difference on my machine whether I cold boot or hibernate (up-to-working time difference is only 1-1/2 seconds different between the two methods), there are times where I must interrupt some intense work and head out to do something else. Thus, hibernation has everything sitting in the state I was at when I come back and resume.
