It doesn't matter it's not a laptop, assume a power failure. s2both will 
save the relevant data to disk and then suspend-to-ram.

The amount of power needed for the ram is at least one order of 
magnitude smaller than the usual power consumption (especially on more 
power-hungry desktop hardware), but you can still resume from disk in 
case power fails.

And resuming from suspend-to-ram is also much faster ;)
