NAME

       systemd-sleep.conf, sleep.conf.d - Suspend and hibernation configuration file

SYNOPSIS

       /etc/systemd/sleep.conf

       /etc/systemd/sleep.conf.d/*.conf

       /run/systemd/sleep.conf.d/*.conf

       /usr/lib/systemd/sleep.conf.d/*.conf

DESCRIPTION

       systemd supports four general power-saving modes:

       suspend
           a low-power state where execution of the OS is paused, and complete power loss might
           result in lost data, and which is fast to enter and exit. This corresponds to suspend,
           standby, or freeze states as understood by the kernel.

       hibernate
           a low-power state where execution of the OS is paused, and complete power loss does
           not result in lost data, and which might be slow to enter and exit. This corresponds
           to the hibernation as understood by the kernel.

       hybrid-sleep
           a low-power state where execution of the OS is paused, which might be slow to enter,
           and on complete power loss does not result in lost data but might be slower to exit in
           that case. This mode is called suspend-to-both by the kernel.

       suspend-then-hibernate
           A low power state where the system is initially suspended (the state is stored in
           RAM). If not interrupted within the delay specified by HibernateDelaySec=, the system
           will be woken using an RTC alarm and hibernated (the state is then stored on disk).

       Settings in these files determine what strings will be written to /sys/power/disk and
       /sys/power/state by systemd-sleep(8) when systemd(1) attempts to suspend or hibernate the
       machine.

CONFIGURATION DIRECTORIES AND PRECEDENCE

       The default configuration is defined during compilation, so a configuration file is only
       needed when it is necessary to deviate from those defaults. By default, the configuration
       file in /etc/systemd/ contains commented out entries showing the defaults as a guide to
       the administrator. This file can be edited to create local overrides.

       When packages need to customize the configuration, they can install configuration snippets
       in /usr/lib/systemd/*.conf.d/. Files in /etc/ are reserved for the local administrator,
       who may use this logic to override the configuration files installed by vendor packages.
       The main configuration file is read before any of the configuration directories, and has
       the lowest precedence; entries in a file in any configuration directory override entries
       in the single configuration file. Files in the *.conf.d/ configuration subdirectories are
       sorted by their filename in lexicographic order, regardless of which of the subdirectories
       they reside in. When multiple files specify the same option, for options which accept just
       a single value, the entry in the file with the lexicographically latest name takes
       precedence. For options which accept a list of values, entries are collected as they occur
       in files sorted lexicographically. It is recommended to prefix all filenames in those
       subdirectories with a two-digit number and a dash, to simplify the ordering of the files.

       To disable a configuration file supplied by the vendor, the recommended way is to place a
       symlink to /dev/null in the configuration directory in /etc/, with the same filename as
       the vendor configuration file.

OPTIONS

       The following options can be configured in the "[Sleep]" section of
       /etc/systemd/sleep.conf or a sleep.conf.d file:

       SuspendMode=, HibernateMode=, HybridSleepMode=
           The string to be written to /sys/power/disk by, respectively, systemd-
           suspend.service(8), systemd-hibernate.service(8), systemd-hybrid-sleep.service(8), or
           systemd-suspend-then-hibernate.service(8). More than one value can be specified by
           separating multiple values with whitespace. They will be tried in turn, until one is
           written without error. If neither succeeds, the operation will be aborted.

       SuspendState=, HibernateState=, HybridSleepState=
           The string to be written to /sys/power/state by, respectively, systemd-
           suspend.service(8), systemd-hibernate.service(8), systemd-hybrid-sleep.service(8), or
           systemd-suspend-then-hibernate.service(8). More than one value can be specified by
           separating multiple values with whitespace. They will be tried in turn, until one is
           written without error. If neither succeeds, the operation will be aborted.

       HibernateDelaySec=
           The amount of time in seconds that will pass before the system is automatically put
           into hibernate when using systemd-suspend-then-hibernate.service(8).

EXAMPLE: FREEZE

       Example: to exploit the “freeze” mode added in Linux 3.9, one can use systemctl suspend
       with

           [Sleep]
           SuspendState=freeze
