Add Suspend and Hibernate to GNOME 3 shell status menu in CentOS 7

    $ sudo yum install gnome-shell-extension-alternative-status-menu gnome-tweak-tool

Next, log-out and log back in.

Then, use gnome-tweak-tool to enable the fancy new extension:

And there you have it; a menu that Windows has had by default for a decade.
