Dumbest question ever

That's probably the dumbest question ever heard, but...
Why is it needed to flush dirty pages? Presumably, all pages are in
the memory, which is going to be saved to disk anyway...
Why is it not possible to
- stop all processes
- tell all drivers to suspend (apart from hard-disk, of course)
- copy memory contents and registers to disk
- suspend system
Is there some document I could read about that so I'll ask more clever
questions in the future?
