Hi!

I'm having the issue that Xfce does not display any power saving options on the logout dialogue, and the "Suspend" entry in the session menu is grayed out. This issue is probably related to my switch to systemd, since before I switched the respective options were available. At first I thought it's a permission issue, yet if I run `systemctl suspend` on the command line with my user account, it works flawlessly.

I'd like to fix this, yet I have no clue where to start. Which of the xfce packages is responsible for this power saving functionality? Are there any special use flags that need to be or mustn't be set in order to get hibernate support in conjunction with systemd? Are there packages which might cause conflicts?

Thanks in advance!

Following through on the bugs mentioned in https://forums.gentoo.org/viewtopic-t-983392-start-0.html this should be fixed with UPower 0.99.x; also make sure you have the upower USE flag enabled, if needed then relevant XFCE packages that are of interest are mentioned in that topic and/or those bugs.

Thanks a lot! While for me the issue was still present with upower-0.99.0-r1 and xfce4-sesssion-4.11.0-r1, the patch supplied by David Carlos Manuelda in the bug report you linked to did the trick.
