Same problem with TDE (trinity) - just purged systemd and the
suspend/hibernate options disappeared.
I spent last few hours reading on upower and found out it exposes the
options via dbus, but somehow 0.99 that is in jessie does not have them, so
there was advise to use 0.9.23 which I just installed and will reboot to
see if it works.
