With my 11th gen laptop, when cold booting or waking up from S3 standby (ie. ‘deep sleep’), there’s a pause of at least 6 seconds, but sometimes as high as 10. For comparison, my 2017 Lenovo Yoga takes anywhere from 0.5-1.5 seconds.
This is before anything even appears on the screen. The screen usually becomes backlit a second or two before an output appears. In the case of S3 wake-up, caps lock doesn’t become usable until the screen lights up, so I think it’s likely this is a hardware or BIOS issue.
I’ve seen several similar issues talked about here - eg. the laptop taking a much longer time to POST or boot (eg. 60 seconds) but not for this (shorter but still annoying) amount of time. I’ve tried toggling quick boot, text mode boot, USB boot, etc. and have tried with and without my expansion cards inserted.
Has anyone had anything similar? Any ideas on how I’d fix this?
Edit: note that this is with BIOS 3.10. Same applied before I updated it though
