Vista Sleep mode

    I find that the more applications I have open, the longer it takes for my computer to sleep. With nothing open, it takes a few seconds. With 20 Messenger windows open (don't ask why), it takes more than a minute. Similar results with no Messenger windows but a lot of IE/Visual Studio/Word/etc.

    Hybrid sleep is off.

    What could it be doing with these windows/processes that's making it take so long? Is there any way to speed it up?

    IIRC, the deeper sleep modes have to save everything to disk so it won't lose anything when the memory is powered down.  The more you have open, the more it has to write out.

    That's only hibernate though. Sleep mode is suspend + hibernate on low batteries (default 5%).
