    yes, its called Hybrid Sleep

    This is from the vista help file

    Sleep saves any open documents and programs to memory, and then puts your computer into a low-power state. Hybrid sleep saves any open documents and programs to memory and to your hard disk, and then puts your computer into a low-power state. An advantage of hybrid sleep is that if a power failure occurs, Windows can restore your work from your hard disk. If a power failure occurs when your work is saved only to memory, your work is lost.

    because i have this problem some times when i come out of sleep mode. i'll touch my screen and no matter which button i press (always the first thing i touch), makes the computer restart. its really werid and if i try to make it hibernate when the power button is pressed when i resume it will freeze if i press any buttons every time.
