If you can get a reproducable test to show that its slower after resume
from hibernate then file a BZ so this can be fixed. The possible cause
is that after resume some of your apps/their data are still on swap so
the first time you access them will be slower as they're paged in.

This is just re-inventing hibernate again with even more work which is
not a good use of developer time as compared to fixing any bugs which
actaully exist in hibernate/resume.
