If you lose the partition then you can recreate it as a regular DOS partition 
and use the PS2.EXE program to recreate the hibernation file.

Linux works well with hibernation on Thinkpads, I've done it on several 
models.

One advantage of hibernation over all other options is that you can swap 
batteries on a hibernated Thinkpad.  So if you need to run for 8 hours 
without mains power then you can have 2 batteries that do 4 hours each.
