Windows 8.1 New Build Slow Wake from Sleep

    Windows 8.1 New Build Slow Wake from Sleep

    When waking my computer from sleep it takes 8 seconds for the screen to come on, then nothing responds for another 25 seconds. I fixed all the errors in event manager, updated the bios, installed all the newest drivers, changed BIOS settings. All to no avail.

    All the components (except the MB and CPU) were recycled from my last motherboard which would be ready to go immediately from sleep. My previous build (which ran great) was also Windows 8.1 but the motherboard died. I have no password. The lock screen is disabled. Disabled suspend, and shut off hybrid sleep.

    Why the lag? Is there any way to find out what's slowing me down?

    MB p8Z77-V Pro
    Memory (not on the approved list):
    CMX8GX3M2A1600C9 4GIG 2 sticks
    CMX8GX3M4A1600C9 2GIG 2 sticks
    i7-3770 CPU
    BIOS 2104
    OS Win 8.1 Pro on a Kingston SSD, data on a Seagate Barracuda ST3000DM001
    NVIDIA GeForce GTX 650 Ti BOOST

    Solved - I examined the sata settings in the BIOS and found the SSD drives were not detecting. Or perhaps semi-detecting since the system could boot off of them. I moved them onto different ports and they started to detect. This also restored my proper wake from sleep speed.
