NO!! On my laptop its not working and its really annoying me.....;) oops, sorry, that's not what you asked......

suspend to RAM: stores the machine state in RAM--keeps the RAM running

suspend to disk: stores it on the hard drive (On the swap partition, in the stuff I am reading)

I think "suspend to disk" and hibernate are equivalent. This option (I think) uses less power, but takes longer to wake up from.


Google will find some definitions--in wikipedia, as a minimum.
