Didn't take look at the script, but 5s appeared somewhat suspicious to
me. Here I get about 20s with eeepc, arch and hibernate.

On my ThinkPad, with ubuntu it takes muuuuch longer, 1 minute or so. I
guess it uses pm utils by default, I have to look into it.

If I would need suspend I would take the approach of OSX -- they call
suspend what is in fact suspend-and-hibernate, i.e. suspend to memory
AND to disk so if you run out of power AND the disk is not damaged you
can restore your session.
