Hibernation on linux at least used to work exactly like this (the newer version might just load the entire memory image, though). In my experience the problem with this system was that it takes long enough that you might as well just start from scratch. The thing is, ignoring the exact state of the applications you had open, there's no reason this should theoretically be faster than booting so it would probably just be better to but more effort into booting faster in the first place.
