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.
