the opposite is the case, hibernate works on nearly every laptop, while
suspend might be tricky for some ... but usually the action users want
to take (even if they dont know how to name it) is the sleep action
(because its faster, easier to start up again (on most laptops you just
have to hit a key on the keyboard to wake up) etc...) 

from personal experience, i use hibernate only if i travel longer
distance, at home i just put my lappie to sleep and can wake it up the
next day by hitting the spacebar and just start working, while hibernate
involves a good bunch of the bootprocess.
