Default Resume time with nvidia card

Hi, I got resume/suspend working quite well, but it takes forever with an nvidia card in the machine:

Code:
Nvidia and X : 32 seconds
No X (same result as booting with init=/bin/bash) : 8.3 seconds
Git kernel : 8.2 seconds
Light kernel (no sound, network card and usb drivers) : 8.17 seconds
ATI card instead of nvidia : 8.22 seconds
This is on a 8800GTS with 177.70 and the adviced tweaks for faster 2d acceleration, tried booting with nosmp/noapic and it made no difference at all.

Around five seconds here on a thinkpad T61 with a nvs140m. Driver version 177.70.

I had a slow resume issue once, but this was because of alpm, I had to set it to medium_power.

bump, anything I can do about it? It makes having nvidia hardware in this computer completely useless (it works as workstation and a server, the server is waken up when needed with WOL, having it take 35 seconds causes network timeouts).

I suspect it's due to how long it takes to switch VTs between XServer mode and text mode; I went thru and cut down the number of "chvt"s in the suspend/resume scripts I'd had and that cut the time down a bit, but yeah, it still takes a while (moving from X to any other VT is a good 10 seconds here, but I'd rather have that than a crash, I guess).

chvt is instant here, and my test is done with kernel timed messages, so chvt wouldn't be included at all. It's direct from the wakeup until it unfreezes the processes.

Dude, does Your comp beeps when waking up? I have quite similar issue that it takes kinda long to wakeup from hibernate...but it beeps... I have no probs with suspend though on current machine... Check this: http://www.nvnews.net/vbulletin/show...=109199&page=3

Uff, I think what are You talkin about I have this delay when I log out (to be precise: when X restarts), screen goes black and wakes up in probably 30 secs, then login appears. I'm wondering wth is that, it seems that nVidia is initializing smth soooo long... But the truth is that I don't really care about it now, coz I log out very rarely

Got 1 beep instantly when it reboots, that's it, and no longer delay when X restarts, could be a related issue though I guess.

note that this is a regression from 173.14.09, the newer drivers take more than 3 times longer to resume.

Did you read my comment? Looks like there is no one else having this.

Do you use alpm?
