Win7 Issues: Slow recovery from Sleep Mode, System hangs when writing
First of all hello everybody, great to be on board on this great forum!
I am a proud owner of Windows 7 Professional 64bit and a completely new PC since 2 Weeks.
Unfortunately I am facing some issues that I could not solve even through excessive searching on the web/forum.
1. My system is very slow when I am copying/moving data on my hdd. I.e. when I am copying data and watching a Movie at the same time, it is not possible without sudden pauses in playback. Another example: When I am copying/moving data on my hdd, I can not open new programs(even small ones!), and even working with already open programs(also even on tasks that do not require any or alot data from hdd) is a real pain. Now all of this was possible with a 10 year old pc with Windows XP Professional 32bit(!), so I am quite a bit dissapointed and have a hard time accepting anything along the lines "don't do more then one thing at once" etc...
2. It is also very slow recovering from sleep mode. Symptoms: Screen activates, I see the normal Desktop and the previously opened windows but I am unable to use any software for at least 30sec-2minutes, it's like windows has a hard time recovering data from the swap disk.
Now these two issues could most likely be related, right? One thing I did was to enable raid on my mainboard to be able to install intel smart response technology drivers prior to installing windows 7, so I could use a ssd later on to boost my hdd speed. My guess is that without ssd the drivers are not working optimally, causing delays in response and therefore slowing down my hdd... well at least thats a guess, if anyone has a better one I'd be glad to hear it because I found no way of deinstalling those drivers without a complete reinstall, and since I was reinstalling everything for days and I need the pc for my business thats no option for me(anyone knows how to deinstall them without reinstalling the whole system?).
Both problems started right after a fresh install (but with intel srt drivers/software installed)

Hello herbun and welcome to Seven Forums.
For a relatively new machine it does seem odd to have these issues. As far as troubleshooting copying/moving data, you might want to see what the Resource Monitor shows and how your machine is allocating RAM, CPU, etc the next time this problem occurs.
As to the sleep mode issue, it could be an out-of-date driver or something within your power plan settings.

Hopefully some other forum members will jump in with other suggestions.
