Bug Description

On https://help.ubuntu.com/stable/ubuntu-help/power-hibernate.html & https://help.ubuntu.com/16.04/ubuntu-help/power-hibernate.html it states that creating a file /etc/polkit-1/localauthority/50-local.d/com.ubuntu.enable-hibernate.pkla with the following contents will enable hibernate on the menus:
[Re-enable hibernate by default in upower]
Identity=unix-user:*
Action=org.freedesktop.upower.hibernate
ResultActive=yes

[Re-enable hibernate by default in logind]
Identity=unix-user:*
Action=org.freedesktop.login1.hibernate;org.freedesktop.login1.hibernate-multiple-sessions
ResultActive=yes

That will only work if the entries [Disable hibernate by default in upower] & [Disable hibernate by default in logind] are commented out or removed from /var/lib/polkit-1/localauthority/10-vendor.d/com.ubuntu.desktop.pkla.

The entries in /etc/polkit-1/localauthority/50-local.d/com.ubuntu.enable-hibernate.pkla does not supersede the entries in /var/lib/polkit-1/localauthority/10-vendor.d/com.ubuntu.desktop.pkla

Also should the logind entry in /etc/polkit-1/localauthority/50-local.d/com.ubuntu.enable-hibernate.pkla be so short compared to the one in /var/lib/polkit-1/localauthority/10-vendor.d/com.ubuntu.desktop.pkla ?

@Sebastien: Is this actually a polkit bug, or is there a need to change the documentation?

@Gunnar, I think that logind/systemd changed and the permissions list needs to be updated like it was done on

I don't think there is any change needed in the desktop privileges definition?

No, there isn't, Sebastien. I misunderstood your hint above; thanks for explaining on IRC.

No, they should be identical. If they are, it works without editing /var/lib/polkit-1/localauthority/10-vendor.d/com.ubuntu.desktop.pkla (which is not recommended, since the file is owned by the policykit-desktop-privileges package, and changes would be overwritten at next update of that package).

I just committed the change. Thanks for reporting this bug, Enkouyami!
