    yep so list your OS and your turn on/off time.

    o and no cheating! [​IMG] (such as disabling programs you normally would have startup)

    Windows 7
    turn on: 56 51 seconds
    turn off: 21 seconds

    it's a lot faster than my vista. so what's yours?

    You just wanna show off that u got windows 7 [​IMG]. I would install the beta but my parents think its gunna break the computer. But its WINDOWS. Why would windows break the computer/!? I tell ya, my parents are clueless. Anywyas, my computer with Vista starts up in like a minute or so and the computer that once had norton antivirus on it and is loaded with programs takes like like a minute or 2 to start up and another 10 minutes until you can actually use it.

    On - from power to idle, about 20-25 seconds
    Off - instant... I just hold the power button (since I never turn it off, I usually have to kill it due to a freeze)

    Well I have tried both Vista and Windows 7 and there's no noticeable difference at all.
    You guys must be lucky.

    I'll post my exact times later.

    Don't time it, so I wouldn't know.
    Turn off: Never, it never happens
    Or instant, holding the power button

    Almost instantly, thanks to it being a mac and not having some bios related crap to go through. Turn on, apple logo pops up, boots in about 20 seconds.
