TDE Powersave -- some clarification needed (not only in my mind -- in the docs too)

TDE Powersave offers 4 states according to the source (factually 3 on my 
* Suspend2RAM -- this is obvious
* Suspend2Disk -- obvious, too
* Freeze -- hmm, anybody knowing what this actually is? (in the code it uses 
the Suspend2RAM icons but calls it's own method)
* Standby -- according help this is either a DPMS screen standby with the 
system otherwise running on power or combined with a Suspend2RAM??? What is it 

And I'm wondering where my most favourite suspend mode is hidden:

"Suspend2Both" aka "Hybrid Suspend"

This mode sets up the swap area as for Suspend2Disk AND then does a 
Suspend2RAM. The net effect is, that you normally have quick resume from RAM, 
but should power fail, nothing is lost as you can resume from disk. 
Essentially a failsafe suspend ...
Its the only suspend-mode I you for desktop systems, and my prefered mode for 
laptop lid-close action as it always does "the right thing" (at little cost).

So, is "Freeze"="Suspend2Both" or can we introduce "Suspend2Both" (if the 
machine and swap configs allows)?
