I don't like it much, as it creates ( in my case) a permanent 6GB file on disc (as I have 6GB RAM) in order to support the hibernate facility. disabling the option frees up the disc space.
There are lots of other issues that cause problems from things that don't recover from hibernation.
Secure network or for most, any connection that requires a interactive 'logon' is probably at the top of the list.
Removable devices being removed (or restored to a different port) during hibernation.
and the real jammer: Hibernation (on all my systems) takes about 3 times (of intense disc usage) the time of a shutdown. Just what you need when a battery is going flat
