Did you use that Big Pond software for your router? Install in compatibility mode? It might be not suitable for Windows 7 and causing the freeze.

I showed you earlier how to install just the driver for your Wireless adapter. Did that work, without the Big Pond software?

It might also be the driver for wireless adapter. Click on it in Device manager and try to Update driver over internet automatically. If not, then google exact name and look for Win7 drivers.

Did you try right clicking on the Free Space to see if it offers any options? Delete if possible and try extending WIn7 then.

It may be logged in Event Viewer, or Performance log which logs service/hardware which causes slow startup or recovery from sleep.

Click through your WEI score link at Computer>Properties to use Advanced Tools>Check Performance logs for exact moment of wake up, determine which hardware or service is causing problem. It may take time to determine this. Troubleshooting takes patience and is a process. You should start a new topic here in General to get more help.

What I was asking about Disk Management is if the green outlined Free Space partition (which I've never seen before) can be deleted or anything else when you right click it so you can recover that space into Win7 or Backup?

I think that green border represents an extended partition.

Right click it and see if you can create a new simple volume.

Post back a screenshot of Disk Management.

Those Event Viewer errors show a slow boot which can often be a device/service delaying startup. It also might be causing the freezing.

To find the exact device, go to this log and check for events listed that are delaying the sleep wakeup at the time they happen: Control Panel\All Control Panel Items\Performance Information and Tools\Advanced Tools

You need to study this log over several days to see repeat instances of a device/service causing delay during return from sleep.

One thing major which needs to be checked is what your ACPI is set to in BIOS: Try S3 and see if wakeup freeze ends. Enter BIOS by tapping key given on first bootup screen. Don't change anything except that. Save setting.

Iggy this came out of the blue after he reconfig's his partitions deleting XP and resizing Win7 into its space. Suddenly some primary space had a light green band around it called Free Space. Now he says there is Dark green which was never there.

Mitch can you post a screenshot of full disk management map for us to look at?
