My current laptop has 2GB of RAM, and I have to do hibernation (suspend to disk) a lot, since I use it in and between classes, and suspend to ram doesn't work (no Linux support yet for this machine ). So I am wondering, if Linux copies everything in RAM (including unused space and disk cache) to disk or just the application data?
I have a SSD so wake ups are not THAT slow, but are still quite slow compared to waking up from RAM, and would like to make it faster. Will removing 1GB of RAM help? Since I don't need more than 1GB of RAM anyways.
