Windows 7: Resume from sleep- SLOW

Resume from sleep- SLOW

I have been unsing sleep with XP and Vista for years now. Typically it took about a second or 2 to resume. The longest thing was to wait for it to resume the wired ethernet connection. Maybe a couple more seconds.

Now with Windows 7 it takes quite a while. I have not timed it yet, but I can actually boot my shutdown PC faster than resume from sleep. My PC has one of those motherboards that has speed booting.

The odd thing on sleep is I get this pale blue (I am color blind) with words something like Resuming from hibernation. Then goes to a black screen with the animated windows icon with test below stating resuming Windows.

I kid you not, I can do a cold boot and get to use my PC sooner.

Can someone help me fix sleep?

Try this, go to search type cmd (from adminis account) and in cmd type sfc /scannow. This will correct any corruption that may be in the system.

Hello richc46,

Thanks for the tip. I ran SFC /scannow. Came up with "Windows Resource Protection did not find any integrity violations".

You know, when I first installed Win 7 sleep worked fine. Shortly after that when coming out of sleep slowly I got a message from the Action Center (I think) saying it recognized it came out of sleep slowly and there were issues.

I cannot find that message anymore in order to investigate. Any other thoughts?

Try checking the disk for errors or defragmenting the disk.

Try going to the event viewer and look for any errors. Just type event viewer in search.

Why not find the culprit by viewing the logged items in "View Performance Details in Event Log"?

OUCH! I have been looking at the event viewer and seeing nothing. This log is completely different. Here are a couple screenshots I think are related.

Can someone help with these?




This machine uses a Nvidia N260GTX card. I have had other Nvidia driver issues since switching to Win 7 x64.


The Logitech updater I can shutdown, but the other 2 are MS stuff. Should I shut them down, too?


This is my mobo quickboot system. Works great. Only thing odd relating to my current issues is when I look at the power config. it shows using the ASRock InstantBoot configuration telling the machine to go to SLEEP after 30 minutes. That appears to work, but when it wakes up a blank screen with "Resume from HIBERNATION". In researching sleep and hibernation are different. Hibernation is a very low power mode and may take a longer time to bring up. If this is the case it could ben an issue with the ASRock Instant Boot utility.


This one is a non-issue. It is my Harmony remote control program. When you shut it down it actually just minimizes to the systray. I have to manually shut it down form there. I must have forgotten.


Here is the performance details. Can you tell why I was having problems?
