I have an XPS 1330, laptop. 4 GB RAM 64 bit. T8100 2.1 GHz. I updated the BIOS to the latest version as of Dec 25 2008. I have not activated the fingerprint scanner.
Here's my perceived problem. With my Sony Vaio laptop, whenever I open the lid the Sony will wake up from sleep mode in a flash (about 1 second.)
With the XPS 1330, whenever I open the lid the XPS takes about 5 seconds to wake up from sleep. It sounds like during the first 3 seconds of wake up, the XPS, is looking for a disc in the optical drive. Why is it taking so long to wake up. My Sony Vaio and Apple laptops wake up in a flash.
