The little moon you refer to is present only when suspend-to-ram.
As far as I understand, on my laptop model (don't know if this apply
to any thinkpad)
the "platform" method to suspend-to-disk, performs two actions: ram
image + an actual suspend-to-disk.
In this case no "little moon" appears on the horizon!

I know thinkwiki.org and I agree with you it's wonderful.
