You were lucky.  Hibernating one OS, running another, and then waking up
the first can leave the hardware in unpredictable states (IIRC the power
management modes don't define support for that).  Linux tries to reset
things, but it isn't supported due to the unknowns.

I don't speak for anybody but myself - that's enough trouble.
