It does that _mostly_. In fact, all network connections are torn down and
rebuilt; and your video is reset. You have the option to force other things
to be reset too (since my USB mouse and keyboard stop working on hibernate,
I force it to remove usbhid and re-modprobe it on resume, and all virtualbox
VMs abort on hibernate for some reason, so I force them to be saved first).

It _should_ do that if the video is local. If it's on a network share, or
streaming off a server, there are no guarantees. But 16GB should be plenty.
