I put my laptop in S3 sleep multiple times a day and pretty much only
reboot for kernel upgrades now. Been doing this for months with no
problems so far (I also use ext4). The file system corruption you seem
worried should only occur if you don't resume properly, so as long as
your resume is reliable I'd say it's perfectly safe to do this.
