Swap space needed for hibernation is considerably less than available
RAM. It is reported in "/sys/power/image_size". E.g. I have 4G RAM and
I need just 1,5G swap to be able to hibernate.

~$ cat /sys/power/image_size

So I would suggest a swap size of about a quarter of physical RAM in
order to make hibernation impossible.
