  Desktop unable to Suspend when Inactive

Status in policykit-desktop-privileges package in Ubuntu:

Bug description:
  On Ubuntu 16.04 and later versions (Xfce/Xubuntu) 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

  /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]
