If you can cold-boot in 60 seconds why even both with hibernation?  With
everything I run, hibernate/resume is vastly faster than shutdown/reboot.

Still, tuxonice would be worth looking at, if it can cut resume time that

My experience with a mere two hibernate/resume cycles since upgrading to
hardy is they seem vastly faster than they were in gutsy.  I'm skeptical.
