If your MacBook is slow to resume when you open the lid

Today I finally found an explanation for why MacBooks so often freeze up for long periods when you close or open the lid. In Windows-speak, the system is going into Hibernate mode (so you could take the battery out, swap it, and everything would still be working) rather than Standby (battery removal not advised).

The solution is here: Does Your MacBook Freeze When You Close It's Lid?. Aside from the misplaced apostrophe, a most helpful article.

Awesome fix. I just stumbled across this entry when I was really here reading about the fake mars photos. But this sleep mode fix is something I've been meaning to google for ages and never got around to it. It works, So thanks!
