RE: Wake from sleep mode has become very slow - please help!
Just bumping this once in case it was a slow weekend and not many people saw
it - any suggestions would be appreciated. I've searched all over the place
and come up empty. Thought this might be the best place to get a reply, but
no dice. Is there a way to diagnose whether this is problem with a a bad
driver? Any one think the KB928135 patch that must be requested from
microsoft will help, or is that only for permanent hangs on resume/wake
versus a long delay? I'm starting to think I need to wait for SP1 or perform
a factory reinstall on my system. Thanks!
