    Hibernate on Linux Mint 13

    How do I enable hibernate on lid close, and on low battery power, as well as enable the hibernate button to appear alongside shutdown, suspend and restart? pm-hibernate works(most of the time!) fine, but I really want lid close to trigger hibernate!

    Post from terminal in Mint

    inxi -F
    So users/members can see what hardware you are talking about. You posted in Netbook/Minibooks and maybe your gear won't support what you want to do maybe.
    We won't know till you elaborate more on your hardware. Like make and model number plus the readouts of the commands I gave in Mint.

    Ok. You have 3 gig of swap and 2 gig of ram and dual core laptop so you have the specs for handling what comes next.
    Just for info. You don't need to be root to run inxi.

    Check this post and thread for reference.

    Linux Mint Forums ? View topic - Howto Disable Hibernate when I close my Laptop Lid?

    I can make this change in Mate fairly easily via the screen saver settings dialog. Cinnamon seems to have no such dialog or similar setting.
    Just more info below

    I tried both the links, and neither making the changes suggested in dconf-editor, nor the script worked... What should I do now?
    (sorry for the long hiatus; I'd been traveling)
