    very slow restore from sleep


    Windows 10 home 1903. I'm bringing this old Toshiba laptop back into use. It is a Toshiba satellite laptop with 3rd generation I7 cpu and 8 GB ram. Yet when I open the lid to awaken it from "sleep" it takes 18 seconds (!) for the login screen to appear. An even older laptop with Windows 7 is almost instantaneous in comparison. Booting up is a real time waster. What can I do to speed up the laptop merely wakening from sleep? Thanks.

    Hi, how fast a device returns from sleep depends on (amongst other things)
    - which sleep states it supports
    - which sleep state it is in.

    See:
    Sleep States Available on your Windows 10 PC
    How to Check if Modern Standby is Supported in Windows 10

    The second refers to
    Check the results to see if Standby (S0 Low Power Idle) Network Connected or Standby (S0 Low Power Idle) Network Disconnected is listed as an available sleep state on this system (supported), or if Standby (S0 Low Power Idle) is listed with "The system firmware does not support this standby state.".
    See the first tutorial to understand these forms of S0.

    You can see this laptop only supports S3.

    Booting up is a real time waster.
    - do you mean it takes a very long time? If so, how long, and what sort of disk does it have?

    Thanks. This laptop has: C:\Windows\System32>powercfg -a The following sleep states are available on this system: Standby (S3) The following sleep states are not available on this system: Standby (S1) The system firmware does not support this standby state. Standby (S2) The system firmware does not support this standby state. Hibernate Hibernation has not been enabled. Standby (S0 Low Power Idle) The system firmware does not support this standby state. Hybrid Sleep Hibernation is not available. Fast Startup Hibernation is not available. Am I condemned to a slow wakeup?

    That's similar to mine- S3 only. If I put it to sleep, then a few seconds later wake it, if takes a second or so from sleep to lock screen.

    You can see the specs- My Computers (under post) - Thinkpad.

    You might like to compare the WEI score:

    "takes a second or so from sleep to lock screen" A second or so would be heaven. This one takes 18 seconds. I think it may be the hdd which is an old slow one. I'm debating whether to put in an ssd. Before buying an ssd I am trying to figure out if there is anything else fundamentally wrong with the laptop making it not worth throwing more money into it. I think graphics is perhaps a problem. Thanks for the instructions to do the WEI score. Why the dickens did they remove it! BTW, why are all my line breaks gone when I submit my answers? Here's the pertinent part (I think). It's pretty long..... - 5.9 8.9 8.9 8.1 9.9 6.7 9.9 9.9 9.9 5.9 - - NoD3DTestRun It's a Toshiba S855 S5254

    Nothing too bad there- you could check your disk performance and compare it with similar on the net..

    From cold boot? I walk away and come back. That bad. This is an old laptop I took out of storage. It had been replaced a couple of years ago because it was so slow it was like torture. The replacement I bought was faster but also "relatively" slow. But when I replaced its hdd with a 1 TB ssd, it became lightening fast. (Wakes from sleep in one sec like yours). I plan to also replace the hdd on this one with an sdd but am checking things out before ordering it from Amazon because returning items is no longer easy in covid days. Before I had retired this slow laptop to storage a couple of years ago, someone suggested the video drivers might be too slow. Anyway to check the video drivers? Right now I am defragmenting the 4 logical drives using the old Auslogics tool. Even though W10 is set to automatically defrag the drives Auslogics defrag shows them very fragmented. So I'm trying everything. I'll wait for the defragmenting to finish before rebooting and timing it.

    Windows maintenance schedule may not have run yet. You can check:
    very slow restore from sleep-1.png
    or even view the task in the task scheduler.

    Defragging drives won't make much difference, especially if data drives or partitions.

    Your WEI score should give an indication of graphics performance.

    I'd be more concerned to do things like-
    a RAM check
    a disk check e.g.
    HDTune v2.55 free - Health and Error scan tabs

    Manufacturer's diagnostics if available (some provide that as a download, others even incorporate a diagnostic feature in the BIOS apparently).

    Even the C dive (system) was heavily fragmented. Took hours to defragment. HDTune v2.55 "free" did not show up on a safe site on searching. Do you mean the 5.75 trial version from the HDTune site?

    Most people find it ok. Softpedia is safe.
    https://www.softpedia.com/get/System.../HD-Tune.shtml

    Or you could try Hard Disk Sentinel (trial) - gives the best instant analysis on its GUI I know.
