Simplify suspend/hibernate notes

I had read somewhere that suspend on the Surface was not really the same
as what Linux supports, so I originally wrote that it wasn't compatible.
However, after some experimentation, I believe the machine really is

 ## Enable Hibernation
 
-For the Surface tablet, Microsoft designed a special low power mode that is not compatible with standard "suspend" supported by Linux. As a result, when you close the tablet cover, the screen is disabled, but everything is still running. Batter life in this state is measured in hours -- not days.

-As a workaround, you should enable hibernation and set the tablet to automatically hibernate after a reasonable period of inactivity.
+To enable disk-based hibernation:
 
 1. Run `cat /etc/fstab` and note the UUID of your swap partition.
 1. `sudo vim /etc/default/grub` and find the setting `GRUB_CMDLINE_LINUX_DEFAULT`.
