I used to have this problem after a resume. Surprisingly it was fixed by
changing a BIOS option or two. On my laptop I had to turn off 'CPU Idle'
calls in the *BIOS* and also (probably due to a dodgy Pheonix BIOS) had to
turn off 'PnP OS'. This solved my problems and so far (touch wood) I have
had no further slow downs......YAY!
