It's exactly vice versa ;-). At least here on my Desktop(tm)(*),
"Hibernate" suspends to disk and the "Suspend" entry of the power
manager applet has a nice stylized memory module overlay (though I
haven't tried it out lately as I should have).

(*): Given some not quite recent discussions on this list, my not
mentioning what desktop environment I'm using should give you an idea
what I use. Sort of ;-P.

Maybe:

Hibernate (to disk)

and:

Suspend (to memory)
