    So out of nowhere my PSP decided to boot really slow. At first it instantly booted the moment I touched the slide even a little bit, now I can slide it out and wait a few seconds before it starts booting, it's not really an issue but slightly annoying and random.

    Which cfw are you currently on ? If you are on 6.20 pro with permanent patch then it is the cause.
    I don't really fully understand it but I think the perm patch boots before the psp and takes a few sec then the psp boots .

    All default.
    Thing is, I've been using the CFW for weeks and only started doing it yesterday.

    You sure you just didn't notice it? Its not really that obvious .
    Anyway try disabling all plugins & reset settings to default and see if there is any difference .

    Well I know it was faster because I got annoyed at the fact that whenever I even touched the screen the PSP booted, now it annoys me because it doesn't boot fast enough, lol

    Maybe it boots from a full power down? Or is it from sleep mode?

    I always boot from full power down, heck, I've never even used sleep mode since I don't know how to.

    Going to sleep mode is just flicking the power switch for a moment. Shutting down the PSP involves holding it up for some number of seconds until it goes off.

    Maybe you were going into sleep mode without you knowing? That's the only reason I can think of other than hardware failure. Booting from sleep, fast, booting from power down, slower.

    Well that's not the problem, I always hold the power button until it's completely off.
    //edit Since this could just be my mind playing tricks on me, can someone time how long it takes for their PSP Go to boot up?

    What type of memory stick are you using? A real pro duo or a pro duo adaptor with a micro sd card?

    Hold 'select' while booting, see if that does anything (this boots into OFW not CFW)

    If it's the same, I'd flash a higher OFW to see if the problem still goes.
    If it's gone when you've upgraded, you can just downgrade back down again.

    Actually, slower booting times are to be expected on PSP gos, using the PERM patch.
    The permanent patch launches and exploit to boot cfw files instead of the standard perm method, when you flash a custom ipl which overides all that shit.

    tl;dr Live with the second more boot times. o.o
