My Vaio has two separate keys for the different kinds of suspension,
Fn-Esc (to RAM) and Fn-F12 (to disk). The manual explains pretty
clearly what the various keys do. Also, an LED flashes while in
suspend to RAM mode, but not in suspend to disk mode. To resume from
suspend to RAM mode, I hit any key, to resume from suspend to disk
mode I have to use the power switch.
