Hi all,

recently there was the following news item:

Title UPower loses hibernate / suspend to systemd
Author Samuli Suominen <ssuominen@gentoo.org>
Posted 2014-06-03
Revision 1

UPower discontinued hibernate and suspend support in favor of systemd.
Because of this, we have created a compability package at
sys-power/upower-pm-utils which will give you the old UPower with
sys-power/pm-utils support back.
Some desktops have integrated the sys-power/pm-utils support directly
to their code, like Xfce, and as a result, they work also with the new
UPower as expected.

All non-systemd users are recommended to choose between:

# emerge --oneshot --noreplace 'sys-power/upower-pm-utils'

or

# emerge --oneshot --noreplace '>=sys-power/upower-0.99.0'

However, all systemd users are recommended to stay with sys-power/upower.

A small tip for GNOME _and_ systemd users, only 3.12 and newer support 0.99,
so if you see the package manager pulling in sys-power/upower-pm-utils
while using old GNOME, like 2.32 or 3.10, you _can_ prevent it by adding
a package.mask entry for >=sys-power/upower-0.99


After I switched from upower to upower-pm-utils-0.9.23-r2 my mate-1.8.0 desktop was not able to shutdown or suspend the compumter anymore. The according buttons in the application menu simply disappeared.
A while ago I had the problem already and back then I was able to solve it over permissions for my user.
Since I didn't change anything I believe this time it is related to upower-pm-utils. I don't have systemd installed.

After searching for a while I was not able to find a solution to this problem. Any helping advice would be appreciated

Best regards

Problem solved. Turned out to be a problem of my login manager slim.

After installing lightdm as described by kenmux here it worked again.
