It's fantasy to think that icons alone will convey the difference
between hibernation and suspension. I enjoy that sort of commentary, but
I also know we have to stay focused on the reality of user knowledge and

So, +1 to the mockup with explanatory text, and let's see if there's
time to get that added.
