That seems rather a long time - does dmesg say anything interesting?
BUT, resume from hibernate (suspend to disk) always takes quite a while,
often longer than a reboot.
Why not use suspend to RAM (which is much faster, and still gives you >
3 days - or the hybrid mode (suspend to disk, then suspend to RAM;
resume from RAM if possible; resume from disk otherwise)?
Btw, which kernel version are you using?
