The problem with using Standby is that it keeps the contents of your RAM active with a trickle of electricity.
Hibernation, on the other hand, copies the contents of your memory to your hard drive.
In the event of a power failure - you will lose data if using Standby, but not if you're using Hibernation.
And, when the UPC battery runs out of juice - that's just where you'll be. I have mine set to hibernate immediately upon power loss and have never lost a bit of data.
Here's how I think your settings should look:
Power Schemes: Energy Star
Turn off monitor: Never
Turn of hard disks: Never
System Stand by: Never
System Hibernates: After 30 minutes
