I forgot to mention that I use Win2k Pro as my OS.  I had no idea that XP boots up and loads everything that fast!

How do you guys get it that fast? I have a Core 2 Duo comptuer with not a lot of programs and 1:10 is fast compared to other computers, but 30 seconds is rediculous. It would probably be faster if the bios was better. the bios is really slow at loading.

5 - 10 minutes?  Ouch! 

Aside from the drivers, the only other applicaton that I have are Norton Ghost, Zone Alarm and AVG anti-virus.  AVG seems to be the thing that takes longest for my computer to finish loading.

Well I did an official time with my iPod's stopwatch. From the desktop to off, it took 9.906 seconds. From off to on with the top and dock loaded (without auto login) it took 31.166 seconds. Not bad, not as good as some of you.
