Yes, you need to install GRUB so it's the main bootloader (i.e., it loads first and can load the Windows bootloader later). This requires some manual configuration. There's probably a question somewhere on Stack Exchange about installing GRUB as a main bootloader, if not the folks at the Ubuntu forums could lead you in the right direction.

Scratch that, I'm thinking of the difference between S1 and S3 sleep (you can generally set one or both on in the BIOS). S4 sleep - hibernate - should either work or not work, I don't think there's normally a setting to turn it off. If there is, the way to change the setting would vary depending on your BIOS. I've edited my answer.
