Ubuntu – No suspend option in UI on Bionic Beaver


There is no suspend option in desktop 18.04. The only way I found is to go to Settings > power options and to set it to suspend when pressing the start button.

It works but I need to log in every time and it's painfully slow to open up.

Best Answer

Open the status menu (upper right corner) and hold alt, the shutdown button will turn into a suspend button as long as you're pressing alt (or long press with the left mouse on the shutdown button and it will turn in to a suspend button). There are also extensions that provide both buttons at the same time without requiring this extra step.
