http://www.ubuntuvibes.com – Hibernate option is disabled by default in Ubuntu 12.04. Hibernate doesn't work in many cases with Ubuntu, so this decision was taken to avoid data loss/corruption that can happen when a user tries to hibernate his system. So if you are quite used to hibernate feature, you will have to rely on a workaround by manually editing some system files. There is no GUI option to enable/disable hibernate in Precise. This default hibernation policy affects Kubuntu and Xubuntu as well and a bug has been filed to at least allow enabling and disabling hibernation f (HowTos)
