Options to hibernate and shutdown missing, or I can't find them.

Hello,

Fedora 15 Alpha gnome 3

I have installed Fedora 15 Alpha with gnome 3. Everything is working fine. However, I can't seen any option to hibernate of shutdown.

In the top panel I when I click my user name I only have one option and that is to suspend. Normally I like to hibernate or shutdown. And I can't see any option of what to do when I close my netbook. Normally, I prefer to hibernate.

Many thanks for any suggestions,

Re: Options to hibernate and shutdown missing, or I can't find them.

This question is going to get asked a lot. Hit the alt key to change the suspend option to shutdown option which will give you a dialog to shutdown or reboot. For hibernate you will have to tweak the settings in power management under system settings I think.

Install gnome-tweak-tool.
Code:
su -c 'yum install gnome-tweak-tool'
Once installed, press ALT/F2 to bring up the "run" window. Type gnome-tweak-tool and press enter. Have a look at the screenshot I've attached. Hope this is what you're looking for.

Thanks Kraekan,

That solved the problem for the poweroff and restart by clicking the 'alt' key. However, it didn't give me an option to hibernate. Normally I perfer hibernate over suspend.

However, under 'power settings' there is no option to hibernate when I close the netbook.

These are the options:
Critically low
power button is pressed
sleep button is pressed

Thanks for any sugestions

You're welcome. Seems that a lot of what we're used to in Gnome is somewhat obscure in Gnome 3.

Looked to me that it was deliberately hidden/sabotaged there is no practical reason for it to be the way it is
