Delay before sleep queue tasks are called? - Mac Programming

I've got an application that installs sleep queue tasks to keep track of the time the machine goes to sleep and wakes up. When it wakes up, I need to find out how long the machine was asleep and update. However, on my new PowerBook G4, I'm noticing that there is often a ten-second (approximately) delay between when the computer wakes up and becomes fully functional and when the task is actually called (ie, the update happens). Is this a known problem, or am I doing something wrong? -- -Thomas e-mail me at thomasareed at philadelphia.net minus phil...

    Default Delay before sleep queue tasks are called?

    I've got an application that installs sleep queue tasks to keep track
    of the time the machine goes to sleep and wakes up. When it wakes up,
    I need to find out how long the machine was asleep and update.
    However, on my new PowerBook G4, I'm noticing that there is often a
    ten-second (approximately) delay between when the computer wakes up and
    becomes fully functional and when the task is actually called (ie, the
    update happens). Is this a known problem, or am I doing something
    wrong?

    Is this 10 sec delay the time it takes the hard disk to spin back up?
    That is, if you manually try something that requires disk i/o immediately
    after the sleep, does it also make YOU wait the ten sec?

    Nope, I can start switching apps, opening windows/files, etc as soon as
    the desktop becomes visible on the screen. However, I've noticed it's
    not just sleep queue tasks -- the clock also has such a delay. In
    fact, I just tested it, and it actually took about *20* seconds (not
    timed exactly, just Mississippied) before my menu clock updated itself.
    (It changed by two minutes, so it wasn't the case that I just didn't
    wait long enough for the minute to change before waking the machine
    up.)
