Windows 7: Slow functioning after sleep

Slow functioning after sleep

Almost every time I open my laptop after it has been in sleep mode, it's always slow. I try opening google chrome and it doesn't open and it usually pops up within seconds. Everything just just gets so slow and it gets so slow that I even have to shut it down manually by pushing the button. I hate doing that though. I just looked at my performance information and it does have a list of two items that are causing it to be slow after its been in sleep mode and I don't know if I should uninstall them or not. Intel Graphics Kernel Mode Driver and Windows Driver Foundation - User-mode Driver Framework Reflector

If nothing comes up then go to the Dell Support Downloads webpage for your tag number.

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...
