If I'm not going to be on my system for several hours (say, overnight or longer), how do I make it hibernate?

I don't want to shut it down because I want to be able to bring it back up later with all of my applications and such where I left them. But I don't want to sleep, because that will drain some battery over a longer period.

In Windows, I would just hibernate. What are my options?

All the pieces are there, Safe Sleep is basically hibernate that normally only kicks in if the battery goes kaput. This toy tries to force that state with a living battery, you can give it a shot.
