Well, it should be a bit less than that. Usually, the resume shouldn't take
more than 5 sec.

That may matter a lot. It would be interesting to check if detaching any of
those devices from the first machine helps. ;-)

Of course the USB devices are also resumed and that takes time (comparable
to the boot time).
