Can we safely close a laptop in which a SageMath computation is running?

I am making computation on SageMath 9.3 (console) on my laptop (Huawei, Intel Core i7, Windows 10). Closing the clamshell puts the laptop to sleep (and so puts the running computation to pause). Then reopening the clamshell puts the computation to continue from where it paused. Is it safe to do so? I mean for the computation (not for the laptop). I did some tests, and it seems to be ok (I mean I got the same output with or without closing the clamshell in the middle of the computation), but I would like to know whether it should be always ok.

Why wouldn't it be safe? The whole notion of putting system into "sleep" is about pausing everything and resuming later.
