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
(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!

  ubuntu-docs - "How do I hibernate my computer?" doesn't accomplish
  it's task

Status in ubuntu-docs package in Ubuntu:
  Fix Committed

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]

  [Re-enable hibernate by default in logind]

  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

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