For desktops, from my experience, I would say you need at least as much as
your RAM. To be on the safe side, I go for 2 times the RAM.
I hibernate my desktops pretty frequently. When hibernating a machine, a
snapshot of the RAM is written on to the swap partition. That is why I
follow "at least as much as RAM" rule.
