Suspend to Ram.

I didn't really even have to configure anything with minimyth.  it just 
worked out of the box.

I did have to flip a jumper on my motherboard to tell it to wake from 
USB, but thats about it.

I have no IDE, CF, or any type of "disk" in my frontend.

I rarely have to actually do a full boot.
