Here's what I have (got it there too.)
http://www.frys.com/product/6640324?site=sr:SEARCH:MAIN_RSLT_PG

I can't say for certain it is firefox5 that caused it as I caught it using Chrome once too. I think it probably is a hibernation issue, not sleep, but still haven't been able to test that yet either for certain.

Anyway, if I close the laptop and come back, maybe I'm safe, maybe I'm not, but eventually within 1-3 days of being up and not restarting/powering off eventually the system takes a giant slow motion shit. I wanted to initially blame firefox because it kept happening as I used it but I'm not certain anymore.

Here's the weird of it. Everything still works, just asininely slow. I mean I can right click the bar-> task manager and it takes a minute or so to pop up, and if I click it more than once or twice it'll think that it's 'not responding' but eventually goes. I've kept up stuff to monitor at a basic level and the CPU isn't being run ragged (like when a pc will crawl if stuck at 99%) and the ram isn't being sucked up any more or less either.

I tried to one by one kill processes via task manager over an hour(yeah that lagged) and got nowhere.

I've currently got hibernation removed/disabled from my computer and sleep is the only thing active.

If you're too lazy to check the link(but you should) running Win 7 64bit Home Premium on an ASUS X53E i5 core laptop w/6GB of RAM, the rest of the specs are in the link.

Anyone got any speculation what the fuck I can do with this as it's bugging the hell out of me I can't close this thing without thinking a time bomb is ticking. I've been hitting google for at least a week trying all sorts of pages for answers and I can't find a damn thing. All I know for certain is that it is NOT a parts defective issue as I did narrow that out of it.

I have more information I finally tracked down the offender, but now I can't find a cause or fix for it...yet.

Win7 64bit and other 64bit Win os's going back to like Server 2003 has this problem where the System-"NT Kernel & System" process gets jacked up and runs at a solid 25% solid and causes the system to get slammed.

I have similar specs on my laptop, I have a i7 though. I use hibernation all the time on win7 64bit and I never run into this. Being that it's hibernation causing it you would think that maybe it would be a hardware issue perhaps ram or hard drive. But you said you ruled that out. So I am just unsure of this.

Yeah I'm totally lost on it. I had one of these already that was a lemon so I know from elimination between the two it's not a parts issue. I know it's not a registry problem calling bad crap either from poking around, and it seems to come down to some stinking driver. I have no idea if it's something intel has for its video, something asus runs that's natively 32bit pissing it off, or some low level api or kernel accessing crap that's setting it off.

1. Uninstall a driver (like the video driver) and reboot. See if you can get the problem to happen again. If yes, then try uninstalling another main driver and repeat.

2. With XP, if the hard drive failed to boot correctly a certain number of times, the UltraDMA mode 5 was turned off and PIO mode turned on as a fail safe. PIO mode is SSLLLOOOOOWWWW and sounds like what your prob might be. To fix, you either delete the hard drive drivers, or search Google for checking on and enabling UltraDMA for your hard drives.

Yeah it is, I have a 500GB SATA drive so that's not a choice. Goddamn thing just did it again or I'd have replied like 10min ago to his post before you got in with this. It's getting on my fucking nerves. The issue can be searched for in google, I'm not alone, but I can't find a resolution so far.

Maybe it will come down to deleting one core driver after another. Maybe starting with video as he said, or something else. I'm really lost on it, it just sucks as nothing seems to be going on which I do to trigger it. I was about to hit 'reply' and it just popped. 25% locked in on the NT System/Kernel whatever it is thing, and then the use of the system/mouse pointer sputters between response and no response.

Here's another person with the same issue:

Replying to myself, found the culprit more or less, but not sure what the fuck is making it so angry let alone what I can do about it.

http://i232.photobucket.com/albums/ee167/tanooki-suit/1usbissue.jpg

The one I highlighted there. I tried to disable it twice and both times it took the system down into the crawl mode again at the 25%. I'm thinking something is going on there as it doesn't like being powered off/shut down from software.

Both those I mentioned I also have now unchecked a box so they don't get powered off in a sleep type mode. I'm hoping maybe that will solve it if it's getting bitchy over being cut off as I read up Windows likes to have fits over that with some people.
