 ! There are many possible reasons. For example, your kernel could be compiled without suspend/​hibernate options. It could also be that you don't have the right permissions to use them. !

 Finally, if none of those other tools are detected then xfce4-power-manager falls back to an internal method to perform these actions. It will use an org.xfce.power.xfce4-pm-helper policy file to determine if it's authorized to perform those system actions. For the internal fallback (and ConsoleKit2) you'll need to ensure you have the pm-utils package installed if you're using Linux. FreeBSD, OpenBSD, and DragonFlyBSD based systems will just work. Finally, if none of those other tools are detected then xfce4-power-manager falls back to an internal method to perform these actions.

 ! This was the subject of many bug reports. Please note that the power manager has nothing to do with these problems, since the kernel is responsible for these tasks. The kernel team is putting a lot of effort into fixing these kind of problems. However, if you still have problems please report a bug to your distributor and hopefully they can contact the kernel team and possibly provide a work-around. ​ !

 ! By default xfce4-power-manager inhibits logind handling suspend/​hibernate and its keys. This is to prevent conflicts that xfce4-power-manager and logind can have. If you wish to have xfce4-power-manager not inhibit logind for a particular function, just set the value in xfconf'​s Settings Editor or with xfconf-queries as shown below. !
