PC freeze 3min after sleep

Basically my computer is freezing for 3min after i wake it from sleep like i can still move the mouse but as soon as I click a application to start it hangs for 3minutes or so...
This isn't really a bothersome problem but i would like to get it fixed....

PS: I posted about this a while ago on these and got some help but didnt get the problem fixed and recently have been putting my computer to sleep to save energy and its happening....

This is a long shot but I have seen this with power fluctuations from electrical outlets. I have had 2 customers have this issue and when I brought the machine to my house the issues stopped. They installed UPS and issues stopped.

Also check that machine is clean and vid card is free of dust in fan. It might be heating up.

I also mentioned power fluctuation.

Don't knock off something before you look. You'll just end up running in circles.
