I have. It's a Thinkpad A20p, and it _doesn't_ go through the bootloader
when it wakes from hibernation ( which it would do, if I used swsusp ).
I don't know about the full power off issue - that isn't the important
distinction I was trying to make. The important bit is:

Quick-boot-recovery -> via bootloader
hibernate-wake-up   -> via bios voodoo
