I have a bit of a strange one in terms of performance.
The system in question is a Dell Precision M3800 with 16GB ram and 2x SSDs (Crucial CT480M500) and Liteon LCS412M65) -
The timeline is as follows:
1. Start machine from cold boot and it's into windows very quickly and runs as expected...very quick.
2. After a day or so, resuming from sleep, it's usable but a bit stuttery.
3. After a day, resuming from sleep, it's almost unusable
Now I never shutdown, only close the lid - something I've always done and never had issues until I got to this system.
I know the laptop is more than capable spec wise
Looking at task manager- nothing taxing at all when it's slow. Disk/CPU/Network/Memory usage is low.
Right now, I have the slow issue in point 2 - usable but not pleasant.
Opening Task Manager (took 8 seconds instead of the normal 1) :
Cpu: 4% Mem: 29% Disk: 1% and network 1%
I've reformatted and clean installed several times but always come to the same conclusion.
So what am I missing?
I'm not a big installer on software as most my development stuff is in VMs which are obviously not running and this time round, not even on the system nor is VMware.
Only common software between installs are Office 2013, chrome, firefox, brother multifunctional drivers/apps and thats pretty much about it.
Startup apps are low.
Antivirus is Avast Premier
I should also point out that when it gets to between point 2 and 3, chrome for instance just does not load (or takes around 5 minutesbefore it appears).
Firefox gets jittery and even doing something simple like going from one cell to another in excel is a chore.
Anything else I can check/anything you can advise?
