 "Cryoslumber" (taking a page from conventional funerology)
 "Undead" (nasty vampish connotation, however--though with Noni as

 "Popsicle" (implying that, while presently frozen, the stiff may be

I believe Arthur C. Clarke used "hyper-sleep" in his Songs From Distant
Earth". Lets find something a little more lyrical, perhaps.
Supernal Sleep (what the heck, it sounds like something Poe or Lovecraft
Sleeping Beauty (hey its got a happy ending!)
Quest-Dreaming (The quest is the future)
Sleep of Healing (its not the sleep , its the awakening that counts)
Soul's Quest (Ain't gonna quest too much if'n the body is dead)
Dream of Time (Thank You George Zebrowski)
