On my new windows machine with SATA3 SSD on SATA3 port its about 14 seconds, there is a little utility screen that pops up for the RAID so I think that might add 1 or 2 seconds. Just to give you an idea when the the four windows begin to swirl and expand they barely start to move and BAM!... login screen.
Sleep mode is not much different than if the monitor is just asleep.

I don't know why that would make a difference unless there is lot of data that has to be read from the drive to be calculated which if you have complex 3-D object is certainly possible.
