    less than 10 seconds from power on to hearing music, including booting the kernel, starting X and then the app ( )

    Wonder how I do that, heh ?

    Well, I cheat, as I don't use the original bios. I use LinuxBios, which only requires 1 second or less to set up the chipset and the Hard Drive
    I don't need no stinkin' startup-shutdown controller... That's what journalized filesystems are for...

    I get 30 sec. with all apps runnning. You're not the only one t0ffluss. I use the hibernation mode, though after reading your post, I'm going to try the sleep mode.

    the STR mode does'nt need to start up the BIOS , like the Hibernation mode does... (in my case, it starts up the Gforce's BIOS, and then jumps directly into windows ... timed it today 5 sec.. DAMN that stupid Nvidia BIOS.. (it takes 3 - 4 sec) .. If I didnt have to wait for it, then the music would start almost instantly after turning on the car...
