I think you'll find that's strictly because of the size of your swap and the
amount of memory you're typically using.  iirc, suspend2 is much more
agressive about removing unnecessary pages before saving - making the
hibernation process both faster and smaller.  I run an oracle database on
my laptop.  If I've got any kind of large program in use, I can't
hibernate, but if I shut down the database first, no problem.
