Nope, not here there ain't. All I have in that dialogue is: Logout, Turn 
off, Restart, Cancel.

To Sleep or Hibernate I have to install the Battery Monitor widget and 
keep it in the widget bar.

Clearly, there's some way to activate this, since you have it, but how?

There's a transitional package called "suspend2-userui"!

Just a shame I have to lose screen real estate to access it, atm.

Be good to fix this.
