    I think it depends on who you ask. I personally think that suspend-to-
    $youchoose is a workaround for the slowness of system startup. I never
    turn off my laptop, I just suspend it.

    (And guess what, it uses APM and suspend is really faster and way more
    reliable than each kernel implementation I could try).
