Two method below given....

1. To activate hibernation,
you have to enable the dconf option in /org/gnome/shell/extensions/alternative-status-menu/allow-hibernate. Either in dconf-editor or via the command line: dconf write /org/gnome/shell/extensions/alternative-status-menu/allow-hibernate true

2nd method

To have back the hibernate.
Go in .local/share/gnome-shell/extensions pay attention at the dot before local, is a hidden directory.
Enter in directory named alternative-status-menu Open with gedit the file extension.js
The line 28 is this item.actor.visible = object.get_can_hibernate() && settings.get_boolean('allow-hibernate');
change it in this item.actor.visible = object.get_can_hibernate(); for some strange reason in the config file *.gschema.xml the hibernate is set to false and Change it to true, but you  remove the control of the option.
