Something that may benefit laptop users would be tuxonice. It serves as a full replacement for swsusp which is the hibernation tool integrated with Linux. The main advantages for it are that it wakes from boot significantly faster than swsusp, so laptop users can set default shutdown behavior to be to hibernate instead and have systems "booting" at speeds similar to SSDs. It takes some effort to set up, so I'm not sure how feasible it'd be to implement in the distro (not difficult to set up if it's already in the system, so your users won't have an issue with it). It requires a kernel patch, however that's not very difficult, then you just need to make sure the right options are enabled in the kernel (they should be so you shouldn't need to edit it either). The main difficulty comes in setting it up so that it boots into the lock screen, and the arch wiki has a guide on that. I'd understand not implementing it, but it could be a nice feature and afaik there aren't any notable distros that do this by default, so it could be a great feature to get MCOLE's name out.
