Except there's a darn good reason why on some occasions you want one
option, and on others, you want the other.

A better use of our time would be figuring out how to disable options
that don't work on specific hardware! Perhaps some sort of "oops I
failed to hibernate" tracking could be used to hint the system that it
really, really does not want to offer the hibernate option any more.
This needs to be robust in the face of minor errors.
