I've been running Ubuntu on a Dell laptop and suspend/hibernate work 
just fine. If you have the right hardware a modern Linux environment has 
no problem with suspend/hibernate.

Dell configures Ubuntu machines if you want to spend a little money to 
invest in something that works out of the box with Linux (certainly 
cheaper than sacrificing many goats):


Other manufacturers have Linux-based systems as well that are factory 
configured for things like suspend/hibernate.
