Windows 7: Sleep resume problems - Slow / black screen upon resume

Sleep resume problems - Slow / black screen upon resume

I am having a few different issues resuming from sleep. With (powercfg -h on), putting the computer to sleep and resuming from sleep takes 20 second to sleep, and 45 seconds to resume from sleep. This is extremely slow because with an SSD in my system, I can cold boot in less time than it takes to resume from sleep. With (powercfg -h off), putting the computer to sleep takes only about 2-5 seconds, but resuming from sleep will display a black screen with my mouse cursor, nothing else. I would prefer having hibernation disabled as the hyberfil.sys file on my system is 8gb, and with only a 60gb SSD, I need to conserve space. I have installed the most recent drivers for motherboard, sound card, video card, BIOS, etc. Does anyone have a solution to this problem? Thanks in advance for your help.
