Bug Description

At https://help.ubuntu.com/14.04/ubuntu-help/power-hibernate.html the mentioned file name is:
    com.ubuntu.enable-hibernate.pkla
But on my trusty tahr system it is only:
    enable-hibernate.pkla
... and it works.

If the file name doesn't matter, please communicate it on that help page.

Quoting from "man pklocalauthority":

So yes, the file extension should be .pkla, and beyond that the technical requirement is that the name is "unique".

However, I don't think it would add much value to add that info to the help page, so I keep it as is for now.
