[xubuntu-users] Xubuntu asks for authentication to suspend and hibernate

I switched back to Xubuntu today, and it's working exactly the way I
want it to save for one thing. I have my Power Manager set to Suspend
both on Battery and when Plugged in after 15 and 25 minutes,
respectively. However, I noticed when I had it plugged in, a dialog
asked me to authenticate before the system would suspend after I woke
the system back up. I fixed this by applying the tip described here:
I decided to test on battery to be on the safe side, and was
disappointed to find that the same thing was happening, with one major
difference: The dialog now asks me to authenticate in order to
Hibernate. This is confusing to me because not only is Suspend my chosen
method of sleep mode, but Hibernation is not even enabled on my system
due to the damage it can potentially do to SSDs.
Does anyone know how to rid myself of this dialog and ensure that the
system is suspending as opposed to hibernating?
Thank you!
