The change to using the 'platform' mode by default was made because some
notebooks didn't suspend and resume correctly in the 'shutdown' mode.

We're working on fixing the breakage, but currently it's difficult, because
none of my testboxes has problems with the 'platform' hibernation and I
cannot reproduce the reported issues.

BTW, which kernel have you tested?

Greetings,
