Fwd: 24.04 Kubuntu problems

Looking in the power management settings, I find:
 * screen blanking is set by default
 * suspend is *not* set by default
 * hibernate doesn't even have an option there

Regarding the latter, I note even that Kickoff lacks the option, too.
This is not surprising given that Ubuntu as a whole disabled it quite a
while back.

That said, maybe there's some confusion here? Maybe something to do with
the user's install being some weird Kubuntu/XFCE hybrid?

Anyways, I have found that it is unreasonable to expect that hibernate
will work across all devices in the same fashion. In that sense, I
wholly support not offering it as an option. That said, it seems folks
are still thinking about bringing it back:
