So, why does nobody I know trust it or suspend? When I mention it to
my Windows-using friends, they laugh at me! They don't trust it. I
trust my Linux installs with both sleep/suspend and hibernate. I've
never had a problem, just like with my Macs.

So, worse than unreliable? Both of us are speaking from anecdotal
experience, but mine is pretty broad, because at some point, I became
curious, watching Windows-users shutting down, instead of "sleeping."
I've made it a point of "abuse" for my Windows-using friends, in fact.
;-) As I said, I don't know one Windows laptop-user who trusts Windows
for suspending or hibernating--though, I believe they trust hibernate
more than suspend--which is absolutely never done. Go figure.
