Hoary - enabling hibernate mode

Have a look at this wiki:

you will need to install acpi-support if it's not already present and
edit /etc/default/acpi-support to uncomment the hibernate=true line and
you also need to add a "resume= " statement to your grub menu.lst but
see the wiki for details.

Or do you already have this and are just missing the option from the
logout menu?

On my laptop I use the "Run Application" tool with the command:
gksudo /etc/acpi/hibernate.sh
The command will stay in it's list so you don't have to type it again
next time you want to use it.
