[sf-lug] will increasing RAM increase power draw during suspend-to-RAM?

When suspended to RAM, a laptop's battery is slowly drained.
My understanding is that this power is going towards keeping
the RAM active. I'm wondering how much of the total power draw
is is being consumed by the RAM chips. Would doubling the
amount of RAM from say 512MB to 1GB have the effect of roughly
doubling the power consumption while suspended?
