I don't know if it holds true, still.  But the old answer to that
quandary was to:

(a) Make sure that GRUB controls your entire boot process (you see it
first, no matter what, and you boot to Windows through it).

(b) Use the "save default" GRUB options so that GRUB records which
option you chose to boot from, and that choice will become the default
choice the next time you boot up.

(c) You set GRUB options for where your hibernate file is, so it knows
where to un-hibernate from.

That's being debated right now, and over the last week or so.

The regime has decided that to save power (and the planet) a PC must
shut down if it's been left idle for 15 minutes.  All unproductive
workers must be sacked, and their PCs put to sleep.  

*Your* power management settings only apply to the PC while you're
logged into it.  If someone else logs in, they need to set their power
management options, separately.  And if no-one is logged in, the login
manager's settings (GDM on Gnome) are in charge, and there's some gconf
(or is it dconf) voodoo to set it's settings - which I can't remember,
but it's on this list somewhere, and here's a link that Todd provided
about it earlier:

Otherwise search the last week's messages for "suspending" in the subject.
