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.
