Sometimes, when i resume from sleep (otherwise known as opening my laptop lid, after putting it to sleep by closing it), it takes only 5-10 seconds or even less to come back to a password prompt.
Other times, like just now, it took closer to a minute to actually come back. I've seen it take close to two minutes to get back from a black screen. I used to think when this occurred that the computer froze or otherwise ceased funcitoning in sleep mode and I then hard powerred off, now i've learned patience.
Is this because it's going into suspend-to-disk mode perhaps rather than suspend-to-ram? I am always plugged in, or usually such, when this happens, so i don't think it would have to suspend to disk.
Also, if it is suspend to disk that is causing this, perhaps a 'resuming' message could come on the screen to give me an indication what is going on?
Thanks for any guidance on how i can resolve this.
