Windows 7: Slow after sleep mode

Slow after sleep mode

It started off with many problems with BSOD when going to sleep, you can see the pig from post here: https://www.sevenforums.com/crashes-d...leep-mode.html
Basically, I BSOD when going to sleep and found out a problem with drivers and PSU wattage.

I managed to get all that worked out but then realized how slow my computer is. I run Defraggler, CCleaner, SFC Scannow, ChkDsk, and Disk Cleaner. My CPU is only at 5% at max, every now and again 1 core will jump to 10%. Not much RAM is being used.

After that when I booted back up the screen dimmed at the Welcome screen and froze for a few seconds. It also seems to be slower than normal. I sure hope something isn't going bad in it. When I go to recycle something, even if its 1KB it has to sit there for a few seconds to a minute and "discover" the item. Same when coping and moving. When searching using the search bar in a window it sits there for a few minutes with the loading circle and the green loading bar in the address bar. It also takes around 20-30 seconds to go to sleep mode.

A lot of these things have been happening for a wile but just progressively get worse.
To go along with the quote, I was able to get a HotFix to fix the Chkdsk issue and was able to run it, that made my computer fast until It wen to sleep mode.

Today when I woke my computer Windows Explorer stooped responding and I had to reboot.

99% of the time a reboot will speed my system back up to speed but it's still annoying it being slow.

Any ideas? Solutions?

I'm honestly thinking one of your drivers is not handling the 'wake' command properly. You sound like you know your stuff so I'm not going to insult you by going over the basics. It seems like it would be either driver based or a setting in the motherboard power options though.

Hm... Any way of checking what drivers could be giving a problem?
I'm not too good at motherboards, would I have to get a new one if it's the problem or cna I edit settings for power somewhere?

You can enable driver verifier and see what it turns up.
Driver Verifier - Enable and Disable

Make sure you read the whole post before turning it on. It can give you issues so you need to take all the steps to be safe.

When it is enabled how do I know the results - What, if any, driver is giving me issues?

EDIT: I ran it and I cant get past Windows Boot, then I get a BSOD. Got in safe mode and disabled Verifier.

Hopefully there are some minidumps now, have a look at the instructions here.
I'm really only after the minidumps but the other information wouldn't hurt.

Usually when driver verifier hits that hard it's an indication we have something to work with.

Does the issue only happen when you resume from sleep? Does the issue occur when resuming from hibernation as well, or is this only sleep-related?

I have never used hibernation before, just did it once and it seems to slow down too, maybe just not as much.

OK, so a machine is started differently when hibernating than when resuming from sleep - hibernation is a lot like a full boot, whereas sleep resume is very little like a full boot (with regards to how drivers are loaded, services resumed, etc). If you get the same problems in both scenarios, then it's likely not a Windows problem. That leaves a driver issue, but tools to capture this are fairly technical (xperf). I would do the usual (make sure you have the latest certified drivers for your devices, uninstall/remove any antivirus/filter/firewall drivers completely, etc) and retest and start moving forward. These sorts of things are actually best tested with a clean system (Windows + drivers only), and then layer on the fluff one thing at a time until you can reproduce the problem.
