Hibernate disappeared from menu after todays update

I have been hibernating this system for ages but I updated it this morning and after a reboot the hibernate option has gone from the KDE menu, it was there before the update because I used it to hibernate this PC yesterday. As normal I did a zypper dup to update this TW/KDE system.

Any suggestions as to how to get the menu item back?


Just to add that hibernate still works fine if I issue

systemctl hibernate

from a terminal.

So the function works just cannot issue it from KDE menu!


I have Tumbleweed in a VM, and neither hibernate nor sleep has ever been in the menu. I have been unable to work out why. And both are there for Tumbleweed in another VM and for Tumbleweed on real hardware.

Have you tried creating a new user, to see if it is in the menu for that new user?

Check your settings:

karl@erlangen:~> grep show .config/plasma-org.kde.plasma.desktop-appletsrc

Created a new user and hibernate was there. Prior to doing this I did remove hibernate as a favourite from plasma-org.kde.plasma.desktop-appletsrc from the user where it had disappeared but that was all. Now when I logged back in as this original user hibernate was back in the menu again and was able to re-add to favourites.
