You can't say clearly IIRC if something get saved to RAM, because this get 
normaly handled by the bios and depend on the bios implementation. I have 
seen machines which show the same behavior on Standby as on suspend-to-ram.

If you provide information about Standby, why are there no functions on the 
interface to call Standby (Standby/CanStandby/CanStandbyChanged/)? I know HAL 
don't provide a interface by default, but there are (maybe old) machines 
which support no suspend-to-ram but work with Standby.
