I have a Toshiba Satellite L655 running Windows 7. It is TERRIBLY slow resuming from sleep (it takes MINUTES before I can click on anything in a browser window if the browser had been launched before sleeping). I've tried both IE9.0 and Firefox -- same problem. According to the Resource Monitor, it looks like it is getting "hard faults" (page faults) for the entire set of memory that the browser had been using, and has to restore it from disk to memory - at a rate of about 1-3MB/s (and it frequently thinks it needs to restore more than 1G -- even if I've barely had any tabs open, and NOT including Facebook, YouTube, or anything with Flash which might be hogs).

It also seems that the amount of memory the browser requires does not go down much when I close tabs. It doesn't release the memory until reboot.
