Adam Engst's TidBITS has some interesting information, cautions, and  
scripts for hibernation mode use. One major caution seems to be not  
moving the machine for almost one minute while it writes all that  
data. Another issue that came up was difficulty in shutting down  
(permanently) hibernation mode.

It does seem like a great feature for people who swap out batteries  
occasionally. Might even be great for other reasons; the TidBITS  
article might be valuable to people using hibernation mode.
