At first I thought so, but now I'd want to suspend, wait a few days,
and then check the battery power. A few seconds after I close the
system the disk spins up for a few seconds and then the LEDs, fan, and
hard drive all shut down.

I saw a note that linux doesn't support hibernate yet. Unless the bios
can handle hibernate alone, what I thought was suspend to disk
probably isn't hibernate.
