hibernation is useful, because you don't have to think about the battery
level, you can always just close the lid, and never think about battery,
never loose data.

with ssd hibernation is nearly as fast as suppend-to-ram, and hybrid
ways like intel rapid are extrem fast, because the system first does a
suspend, and if the suspend
lasts longer, it does a hibernation, so as user you never have to wait
for hibernation.
