Laptop not spinning HDD from hibernate/powered off

This question is not answered

When starting from hibernate mode or powered off, the HDD doesn't get power to spin.  I replaced the HDD thinking this may solve it (from WD Scorpio Blue to Seagate something), but it did not.  After about 3-5 minutes, the HDD will get power and spin up fine, but there are a few minutes initially of just a glowing black screen.  Any ideas about fixing this?
