Hibernate button missing for no obvious reason.

On my laptop (Dell Latitude E6420), hibernation through panel->menu->logout->hibernate worked perfectly. (Slackware-current)
Until one of the updates of the system broke it, and when I open the same window panel->menu->logout, there is no 'hibernate' button, and the huge 'suspend' button occupies the screen space of both.
The problem is not the 'unavailability' of the hibernate button. It was probably broken by one of my updates (probably the kernel).
The problem is that now I'm completely clueless that such a function even exists in XFCE. (Or I would have been clueless if I hadn't used this feature before.)
Could the honourable XFCE developers implement a warning label on the logout window, saying something 'Your system is missing X, so I hibernation is not supported.'
Then debugging such issues would be much less of a task.
