Windows 7: Taking 4 to 5 minutes to sleep after updates.

Windows 7 Home Premium 64bit
Taking 4 to 5 minutes to sleep after updates.

I build all of my computers. I recently built an asus Z77 series computer

Installing the operating system windows 7 everything is going well. Install all the drivers through the thumb drive method. "all good like 2 to 3 seconds to sleep" Proceed to update, finished all the updates. After this it takes 3 or 4 minutes to sleep? I'm thinking okay this is kind of weird.

Not quite sure how to debug this?
