I'm pretty sure it takes less energy to have a modern computer in  
standby for a week or two than to boot the machine and to restore all  
the applications running (think about 30 documents open on my average  
desktop). Not to mention about an hour of work to do the latter.

IIRC, in sleep-to-disk mode you can even pull the power plug without  
enforcing booting.
