Hibernate-in-shutdown-menu

The hibernate option has been dropped from Ubuntu’s shutdown menu since 12.04 Precise. You can re-enable this feature by following the steps below. Tested on Ubuntu 13.04 Raring, 12.10 Quantal, and 12.04 Precise.

1.) Open a terminal window for running commands. To do it, press Ctrl+Alt+T.

2.) Copy and paste this command into terminal and hit run to create the hibernate configuration file:

sudo gedit /var/lib/polkit-1/localauthority/50-local.d/hibernate.pkla

3.) Copy and paste following lines into the file and save.

[Enable Hibernate]
Identity=unix-user:*
Action=org.freedesktop.upower.hibernate
ResultActive=yes

Enable-hibernate-ubuntu

Now restart your computer.

Ubuntu’s window buttons (Minimize, Maximize, Close) are a little different. They are on the left corner of title bar. You can change them if you’re comfortable with buttons at right top.

In Unity Dash Home search for and open “dconf Editor”:

Dconf-editor-unity-dash

In next window, navigate to org/gnome/desktop/vm/preferences, chance the value of “button_layout” from “close,maximize,minimize:” to “:minimize,maximize,close”

Ubuntu 13.04 Raring comes with workspaces disabled by default. So you’re unable to switch between workspaces via hot-keys or shortcut icon on Unity Launcher.

To enable this feature, search and open Appearance in Unity Dash.

Appearance-unity-dash

Then you can easily switch on or off the wordspaces as well as the shortcut keys at Behaviour tab.

After enabled this feature, use Ctrl+Alt+ Up (Down, Left, Right) key combination to switch between wordspaces. Or click the “Workspace Switcher” icon on Unity Launcher to view workspaces.
