couple of things here,,

First check your Power Management settings in the Control Panel,, I like to set my timeouts to NEVER,, I will choose when to turn off ,,,

Second,, Check out if you have HIBERNATION enabled,, I personally hate this configuration, on a Lot of machines, this will crash systems at wakeup,,

Further,, in the HIBERNATION there is a setting for how much disk space to allocate to Hibernate to,, if you have a near full drive, and small swap file,, this will take time to wake up,,

Additionally, check your Power Management in your BIOS settings,, configure what you would like the PC to do there,,

So, you have some options,,, however,, I lean heavily toward the Power Management and Hibernation combination, VERY heavy on resources,,,
