while this is not a problem for clients (they won't be sending traffic
while OS is hibernating) it does cause interruption for others using
your relay as a bridge or exit.

when you terminate and/or OS hibernate any circuits with your relay in
them will fail.  if you are not a guard or stable exit the impact of
this might be minimal in practice.
