I just booted a brand new purchase of a MacbookPro 8,2, and the default
behaviour upon lid close is most definitely to suspend-to-ram.

Similarly, the default behaviour of Windows Vista and 7 both appear to be
to suspend-to-ram (as tested in new installs on Dells and HPs at large USA
retail chains).

On the other hand, it does seem interesting to attempt to detect running
off a live CD and to inhibit suspend-to-ram (and possibly suspend-to-disk,
too). Would you care to file a defect report for this idea?
