Did you ever come up with a solution? I'm having a similar issue.

No not really. According to the action center my problems center around my quickboot software and video drivers. I don't want to disable quickboot and the video drivers are up to date.

I mainly just do a shutdown since it boots in about 10 seconds.

After review, I really think if you are having a similar problem it is just as the Action Center says, look at those programs it points out. I now believe my fastboot program for the mobo was causing my problem. With that disabled sleep works fine again.

Resume from Hibernation Slow


I am facing a similar issue. I think its actually the resume from hibernate that is slowing me down (as opposed to resume from sleep). When I resume it takes probably over 2 minutes. It first goes to a windows 7 loading splash screen, then to a black screen for over a minute, then to a login screen.

I have an ASUS UL30V running windows 7, and it is less than 3 months old (there is literally nothing installed on it), so I can't see what would be slowing it down. In the performance details in event log section, I keep saying entries relating to slow resume, but no details are provided (at least nothing that I can make sense of -see attachment).

Any ideas? I know my windows 7 is uptodate - is there anything else that I should be updating?

My issue was an instantboot program running in the background. Once this was turned off resuming from sleep was normal. Check your action center flag in systray.
