Default Computer taking too long to come out of sleep mode

Any ideas on how I can speed up my machine from coming out of sleep mode, takes like 90s? I think the slow down is coming from my mobo... I have no device problems in device manager...

Just power it off instead of sleeping, then turn it back on when you need to use it.

That's really useless advice... why don't I just stop using my computer, that would solve my problem too...

What sleep mode do you use?
Most of my computers can boot in less than 90s, so I'm wondering if you're using hybrid sleep and actually cutting power? This would behave exactly as hibernation and explain the long boot times (as you need to copy back the 8GB of your RAM from HDD).
You need to enable S3 mode for sleep (STR or Suspend To RAM) to have a very fast sleep/resume option.

SSD's are known to have issues with sleep mode, make sure you have updated the firmware on the drives and you are running the drive in AHCI mode in the bios. The reason i posted it before is that your on your computer at ur house its not a laptop so sleeping it isnt necessary for a fast boot since u already have a SSD. but the SSD may be ur main issue,.

okay thanks guys I'll check out the firmware... I have a second computer with a slower cpu and gpu with the exact same SSD and it comes out of sleep (Start-> Shutdown Arrow -> Sleep) about 4 times faster then my main computer which is about 10x more expensive, pretty annoying...

Format it. Or rather change your hard disk. My PC had the same problem i had to change my hard disk but now it has a problem with the CPU itself.

A driver for a piece of hardware is to old or not installed, the only thing I can see holding up a wake cycle is a driver not resetting its device correctly.

Sorry if this is late, but it may still help..

Try to view performance details in eventlog, it usually gives good clues which drivers are slower than expected.
