Hi guys!

well, i’ve been watching that when the system wake up form hibernation, the LED that shows me the activity (I guess read/write..) of the hard disk is blinking, and keep doing that for several minutes (2- 6 minutes).

The weird part is that the system is not going slow, when i open the task manager to see what is running, in processor usage the value is minimal, between 0 and 5%.
In the “process” tab, the only thing using some CPU is one of the “svchost.exe”, it had an intermittent CPU usage of 0-3%, when i finished it, the LED stop blinking.

The system only do that when waking up from hibernation, on restarts or normal starts, everything is normal.

That is normal to have that happen during the wake up process after hibernation, because "hibernation puts your open documents and programs on your hard disk, and then turns off your computer." so when you hibernate it puts all of the current "temp" settings and/or anything on ram, on your hard drive and shuts down the computer. Ergo when you turn it back on windows loads all of that information. :)
