I just upgraded my HP TX252NR laptop to an Intel X25-M 160 GB SSD. I did a clean install of Win 7 Ultimate 64 bit. I have 3 GB of RAM. My laptop takes about 70 sec from a cold boot to login. This is much faster than the 5400 rpm drive and Vista Ultimate 64 bit. My problem is that if I hibernate the laptop it takes over 3 minutes for it to get to the point I can login. The resuming Windows screen comes up in about 20 sec which is roughly how long it takes to get to the starting Windows screen, then it seems to hang here anywhere from 2.5 to 3.5 minutes. The disk activity indicator is off and the CPU fan is running full speed. My disk score is 7.6 and my processor score is 4.8. I have update the SSD firmware to the latest. I have updated the laptop to the latest BIOS as well. Win 7 is updated with all the latest patches. Thoughts?
You should test which task(/s) make the hibernate take such a long time.
Does hibernate with minimum tasks running work?
If the answer is Yes - just follow the "elimination" method.
Next step is to redo the same test with a selected important tasks that you want open, and see if any of them is/are the culprit(s). You may have more then one process that may be causing you problems.
