My user is a member of the power group but cant use pm-suspend

Hi,

My user is a member of the power group but cant run pm-suspend without sudo. The wiki says member of the power group can use pm-utils but its not working.

pm-suspend is in /usr/sbin so I tried creating a simlink to it in /usr/bin/suspend but the terminal just froze and nothing happened.

I'm trying to manually run xautolock -time 120 -locker "pm-suspend" So i can leave my PC on for a while when I go out. If I put sudo infront it just sits their waiting for a password.

Any ideas how I can fix this?

Thanks.

Probably better to use systemctl to suspend. You shouldn't need to be in the power group.
