Not often. But it can be handy if you have to relocate it, or change
a UPS, and can not afford the time of a normal bootup.

In that case, I would probably give the machine ~1-2GB of swap for normal everyday thrashing, and have another partition that is ready for use as swap but not normally used/mounted, which is sized for allowing hibernation. Bring the extra swap on line only when you need it.
