Dell 9100 takes long time to come out of standby

Archived from groups: alt.sys.pc-clone.dell (More info?)

Hi,

I have a Dell 9100 that works nearly flawlessly, except that it takes nearly
15 seconds to come out of standby (not hibernation). On other machines I
have used, 1 or 2 seconds is usually all it takes. I hear the hard drives
start to spin up after 10 seconds (it is not clear anything is happening for
those first 10 seconds) and the monitor comes back on after 15. This seems
like way too long.

I tried chaning standby from S3 to S1, but the times are identical.

I tried shutting down all running programs. The standby recovery time did
not change.

Boot up time from power completely off (power switch to desktop): 43s.

Hibernate recovery time (power switch to desktop): 26 s

Any ideas?

A summary from Everest is shown below.

Thanks,
Peter

    I'd bet it is reacquiring a network address.

    In my experience, if something comes up in 1 or 2 seconds, it wasn't in
    standby, but maybe just had the monitor turned off. It takes time for the
    disk to spin up and network associations to be acquired.

    Also, for what it's worth, in my testing (with a watt meter), my standby did
    not drop power consumption significantly unless I had disabled wakeup from
    keyboard or mouse action, and the only way to wake it up is the start button
    on the CPU box.

    Bottom line is I suspect you're comparing apples to oranges, and your other
    systems weren't in true standby mode.

    Thanks for the response, Tom. Any reason why you think that is the problem?

    I have had many other machines on the same network that come out of standby
    almost instantly. I did a quick test and the router showed in its log that
    it gave the machine in question its IP address 5 seconds into the 15 (I
    synchronized the router clock to my watch first). But the hard drives don't
    start to spin up for 5 more seconds. On other machines, the display comes
    back instantly even as the HDs are spinning up.

    Just a guess, as it is fairly common. Have you tried a different monitor?

    I tried a different monitor and get the same thing:

    1. monitor power indicator shows power down mode (orange) for 15 seconds
    with blank screen
    2. then power indicates goes green and the display goes on

    The monitor comes on very quickly coming out of hibernation or when powering
    up (the power indicator goes from orange to green within a second and then
    the display comes on). Maybe this is a graphics card issue (ATI Radeon
    X300).

    I hadn't thought of that. It is a good point. Do you think 15 seconds is a
    "normal" amount of time to come out of a true standby?

    I have a Dell 4550 2.4G P4 that shuts off all of the fans in standby (nice
    and quiet) and it comes out very quickly. I guess if that machine is not
    really in standby (i.e. processor still dissipating significant power), it
    should overheat.

    I may not be measuring coming out of standby perfectly. On the other
    machines the monitor comes back almost immediately. The HDs still have to
    spin up. But you can begin to move the mouse to do something. On the 9100,
    the monitor is off for 15 seconds, so it is VERY apparent the machine is not
    ready for anything.

    Thanks for you inputs,
    Peter

    Yes, if the case fans turn off, then it must be true standby; otherwise the
    CPU would melt. And you raise another possibility: That various components
    wake up at different speeds, so maybe you see the monitor turn on and the
    mouse may respond, but the system still isn't quite "awake" and fully
    functional for a few more seconds. When I wake up my PC, I generally don't
    try to do anything for a number of seconds, just to give it a chance to
    power up. I'll leave it to others to confirm that it takes more than 1 or 2
    seconds for a PC to come out of full standby, and to offer some numbers for
    power-up time.

    FWIW, This Dell page defines the difference between S1 and S3.

    Thanks for the info. I'm getting the feeling that maybe the 9100 or some
    component is just slow to "wake up". I can live with it, I just thought I
    would see if the time could be reduced.

    If the power led is not flashing, it is not in standby.

    The power light does blink in standby as expected.

    Here is some new information from bootvis. It shows that 11 seconds is
    spent in HDAudBus.sys. Apparently this is the audio driver. Any idea why
    this should take so long?
