It depends on what you are using STD for. ;-)

It might be a bit off-topic for this thread, but I'm using STD for
turning my PC off in the evening and getting it back in exactly the same
state in the morning.

This might not have been the original purpose of suspend, but it works
quite well, STR is obviously not an alternative, and it doesn't matter
much whether it takes a minute.
