For Low Power RAM needs, FRAM instead used widely with a better performance for embedded systems, it can retain data with No Power Supply, No Refresh, No Clock is needed. It is RAM and non-volatile. Toshiba's next aim for SRAM must be a new non volatile structured SRAM.

I wonder just how much time is spent in standby, for example in your smart phone? Even though it is not being actively used it is still "connected" and the wireless is running at some rate with the needed processor overhead. It sounds like a neat idea but I am wondering just how much it will save in real world mobile applications...
