If turning on a computer was as fast as waking it up from sleep, then it might eventually enable a OS to do away with the ugly complexities of hibernation.

Hibernation has other benefits like being able to keep all your programs/documents opened. Even if you have a session manager that saves state on shutdown, it still needs to reopen everything one by one as opposed to loading an image into ram.
