Yes, you want to use the hibernate function.

This provides a complete set of instructions: http://woikr.com/mac/make-your-macbook-hibernate-instead-of-sleep-lionsnow-leopard/

The basic idea is:

Open Terminal.app.

Enter the following: “sudo pmset -a hibernatemode 25″

Enter you password when asked for.
