WOW - Vista Takes Long Time To Wake Up
Vista on my T43p takes two to three times as long to wake up from ACPI S3 Mode (standby) with Windows Vista as with XP SP2. And yes, I have installed all Vista drivers from Lenovo.
In my search for a solution to this problem, I stumbled across JVert’s blog-entry „Fast Resume, 6 years later”, in which he describes how he optimized wake-up times in XP and how much easier that got with vista.
Using the Event Viewer and ETW (Event Tracing for Windows) you can maybe find some „Standby Performance Monitoring” events which point to badly written drivers, etc.
Check it out, looks interesting.
