User input is required anyway since the only way to tell if
hibernation/suspend works is by trying it out. The status reported by
the system is not 100% reliable.

So the choice is between opt-out or opt-in, but the latter needs to be
made easily discoverable.

And hibernation can work on desktops too, not only laptops, and it makes
sense for faster restart of the system.
