what you are doing, your cpu, video chip, sound chip, RAM, ... are
all still running. With suspend to RAM, they are all completely
shut off, except for the RAM. No need to worry about the update
daemon, since the cpu isn't running *any* processes.
As a test, you could see how long your machine lasts on battery power
after "apm -S". I suspect it will be about 5 hours. With suspend to
RAM, my machine can last something like 24 hours.
