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. See systemd.syntax(5) for a general description of the syntax.

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/ or /usr/local/lib/systemd/*.conf.d/. 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 in which of the subdirectories they
       reside. 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.

       Files in /etc/ are reserved for the local administrator, who may use this logic to
       override the configuration files installed by vendor packages. 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:

       AllowSuspend=, AllowHibernation=, AllowSuspendThenHibernate=, AllowHybridSleep=
           By default any power-saving mode is advertised if possible (i.e. the kernel supports
           that mode, the necessary resources are available). Those switches can be used to
           disable specific modes.

           If AllowHibernation=no or AllowSuspend=no is used, this implies
           AllowSuspendThenHibernate=no and AllowHybridSleep=no, since those methods use both
           suspend and hibernation internally.  AllowSuspendThenHibernate=yes and
           AllowHybridSleep=yes can be used to override and enable those specific modes.

       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 the system spends in suspend mode before the system is
           automatically put into hibernate mode, when using systemd-suspend-then-
           hibernate.service(8). Defaults to 2h.

EXAMPLE: FREEZE

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

           [Sleep]
           SuspendState=freeze
