Hibernation restores VERY Slowly

I have an AMD 1800+ machine with 1 gig RAM and WinXP Pro with SP2. I have been using Hibernate ever since XP came out. Everytime I use it, it takes about 10 secs to go into Hibernate, but every time I turn on the machine, it take about 1.5 mins to restore. A cold boot is only 1 min longer. My wife's PIII 350 mhz 256 meg RAM machine takes about 10 secs . The same is true with my brother's and my sister's faster processor machines, even with 2 megs of RAM. I do not see why my machine takes so long to restore. I would appreciate if you can tell me if any of the processes or common startup programs can be eliminated which may cause this.
