Because we're the poor buggas who debug their ideas...  But I agree.  

If you're creating commercial installations that have to adhere to some
illusory green-washing principle you really shouldn't be using stock
installations but a custom one.

The average home user switches their PC off when it's not in use, and
expects it to stay switched on when they want it.  The non-average PC
user that leaves their PC on for extended hours, or 24/7 has done so on
purpose because that's what they want it to do.

And quite frankly, I can imagine chaos in the IT department of a
business that has to deal with multiple employee PCs going dormant at
inopportune moments.  Computers going tits-up because the worker was on
a phone call that took longer than the impatience period, had to do
something away from the desk, lunch breaks, whatever...

Me too.

Those of us who've been around here long enough remember that a great
number of computers fail spectacularly at suspending, hibernating, and
resuming.  Sometimes its the hardware, it's never going to manage it. 
Sometimes it's the software, they've gone about it in an ill-conceived
manner, or expected all hardware to work in some particular way.

As a general rule, manufacturers only test against Windows
compatibility.  And if they find a problem, and if they decide to
bother with a solution, it'll be a Windows patch, rather than fixing up
their hardware.
