Somewhere I've read something about keeping wifi associated to an ap during
suspend which might be a candidate for such a distinction?

So using the shallow suspend as standby sounds interesting, for the time when
the deep suspend works too. If there is only one suspend state it
automatically becomes the "mem"-state it seems.
