Thanks very much for any suggestions !!  I'm "running" Debian Linux v 2.88 Of course if more details are needed just let me know...

 

The options suddenly changed, out of nowhere, for when i go to shut down the laptop. Previously, i could use hibernate or shut down. Now my only "relevant" option is "suspend". I am a relative novice, alas, and looked through "the files" re system settings, etc., but couldn't find anything that seemed helpful. Any suggestions? Thanks a lot !!

I am guessing you are running standard Debian with gnome shell that looks like this:

Gnome shell is really horrible for this kind of thing, thats why checking here is a good idea:
