I would have thought suspend harder to support than hibernate.  A dump
to disc, and back again, ought to work relatively simply.  But telling a
computer to partially shut down, and not have it completely shut down,
and to keep its RAM refreshed, sounds like more work.

All mail to my mailbox is automatically deleted, there is no point trying
to privately email me, I will only read messages posted to the public lists.

George Orwell's '1984' was supposed to be a warning against tyranny, not
a set of instructions for supposedly democratic governments.
