I don't agree. If I shutdown my laptop to put it in my backpack, I
want it to be in the lowest power state possible. So s2both can't be
used here. 

If I close the lid to walk to somebodies office in the other building,
I wan't it to resume quickly. But if I, for whatever, reason end up in
the pub instead, I still want to be able to resume afterwards;)

I think this too, so this discussion will be a bit moot in the future. But I
think I'll add this option anyway so I can use my laptop the way I want it;)
