The solution is right here, so simple to apply. Why is this ignored? No
one else suspends their machines? Merge the necessary polkit rule,

  Desktop unable to Suspend when Inactive

Status in policykit-desktop-privileges package in Ubuntu:

Bug description:
  On 16.04 (XFCE session and others) and possibly later the power-
  manager is unable to suspend the system when the user is inactive. A
  PK user-agent dialog is presented for the user to authenticate first -
  and as this action occurs specifically when the user is idle and away
  the PC can end up having an unplanned loss of power when the battery
  is exhausted.

  /var/log/auth.log shows:

  polkitd(authority=local): Operator of unix-session:c2 FAILED to
  authenticate to gain authorization for action
  org.freedesktop.login1.suspend for system-bus-name::1.47 [xfce4-power-
  manager --restart --sm-client-id 2992705d4-6fa2-4fba-966c-
  f7631ecd0b46] (owned by unix-user:tj)

  The problem seems to be "com.ubuntu.desktop.pkla" is missing an entry
  to allow Suspend. Currently it only has an entry for hibernate.

  Adding the following stanza solves the issue:

  [Enable suspend by default in logind]
