Windows 7: Windows 7 Seems Slower to Sleep and Wake Up

Well the CPU utilization was just because I had some programs running when I did the report, and I temporarily disabled sleep so that explains the first error.

The ones I am concerned about are the "USB could not enter suspend" errors. Vista took about 10 seconds to wake up for me when I struck the keyboard or mouse. 7 takes about 30-45 seconds.

Am I just up sh!t's creek here?

Guess no one really knows much about this? I flashed my bios to the latest version from Gibabyte's website. The USB ports are all on my mobo, and I disconnected every external USB device available. I still get the "USB device could not enter suspend" errors though. I was able to decrease the number of errors to about two, but I'm still getting them.

Any other suggestions for how I might go about getting this fixed? The slow wake from sleep is really killing me.

The USB error messages MAY just mean the device carried on being powered throughout sleep mode, so you would think these USB devices don't even need to wake up. Your problems would then be elsewhere. It's a difficult one for sure. Have you enabled S3 mode in your BIOS, that's usually the best one. There may be a few other BIOS entries you can try as well for sleep mode. In Device Manager there should be some wakeup entries for your NIC worth trying. Event Viewer could help, but I'm no expert on its use.

The only other slow wakeup problem I've ever had was with XP, I suppose it could be a 7 problem also, and that was that browsing didn't work for about 30 seconds. That turned out to be DNS not working as browsing worked fast if I typed a web page address in as numbers (try Google on Google). The fix was to let my router have all the DNS server address info, and just point Windows to the router's address (often it's 192.168.0.1) for its DNS server address. Then it works instantly after waking up.

Well it seems I found the culprit. It's my Samsung Spinpoint F3 1TB HDD. When I disconnect the drive, Windows resumes from sleep within about 10-15 seconds. Connected, it takes almost a minute.

I'm going to test the drive with Samsung's software.

EDIT: Software is incompatible with Win7x64

Looking at it again, I get varying write speeds when moving large files to the drive. I can transfer group of files at around 15-30 MB/s. On the other hand, I can transfer a large group of files to my Seagate at about 115 MB/s.

Strange, the Samsung F3 was top drive for read/write speeds with large and small files in a UK magazine very recently, beating Raptors. My Samsung F1 works fine with Win7.64 in speed/sleep matters, in fact I would regard 10 seconds as very slow, mine's about 2 seconds with either MS or Intel HD controller drivers. I reckon your problem is an AMD HD controller one.
