    Oh, well when it sleeps, it makes a sleep image, so when you wake it back up, your content should just pop back up. It might have to do with what it's trying to save before sleeping.

     

    if the behavior is acting slower then usual you might need to run disk utility to see if there is anything wrong with the disk volume that would make it pause before fully sleeping.

     

    Not sure how to resolve this specific issue. how old is your computer? what's the Disk Drive you have in it SSD or HDD?

     

    it could mean your HDD is really full and it takes a while for things to be processed before completely sleeping.

     

    It could also mean your HDD is failing but that's a shot in the dark.
