That depends on what kind of hibernation you are using. I am using
swsusp which means that the laptop is actually completely off when
suspended so I can take the power and the battery out, press the power
button for 60 secs to empty all capacitors and whatever else you want
and then still resume the system (including nfs mounts if there were
any) ;-)
