What is harddrive/RAM doing???

Very often when I wake up my computer, for a good 5 minutes the harddrive goes completely bozo and the system is extremely unresponsive since (I guess) it is in the process of waking up - in addition, when I look at task manager (even when observing "Show processes from all users") the majority of the RAM (>85%) is "System Idle Processes."

1) What is it doing, and how do I stop it?

2) Whatever is happening, why isn't it displayed?

Thanks - BTW, I had observed similar behavior with Vista.
