It will be faster with hibernation
To halt the system, you put it into hibernation and the restart is very
fast (it will depend on the loaded-running software), and you will be
exactly where you was when you stoped it

It will be a xrun, but it doesn't matter at that time

Hibernation/resume will work even with a rt kernel
