    Use Bootvis to find out what's slowing you down, and run "optimize" a few times. Use Pagedefrag. Run services.msc, and disable everything you don't need. Set services you might need to manual. There's lots of guides that describe each service. There's lots of guides to tweak windows settings as well, which include things like adding /noguiboot to your boot.ini, setting the page file to a fixed size, turning off system restore and file protection, etc.

    Nlite is the best choice. Right now my slow M10k resumes to music in under ten seconds, and from cold boot with Explorer as shell and Road Runner simply started by a shortcut in the startup folder, I hear music in under 15 seconds. A bit sower than it used to be, but I'm in serious need of a reformat.

    If you get the Intellistart addon for your Clifford alarm, it has battery voltage monitoring and can start your car at a selectable minimum voltage.
    Please make a video when you say 10 seconds is that post to music or xp loading to muisc.

    Let me see this in action with a camera video or a digital video camera video.

    thanks

    It isn't difficult to have a machine come back from standby mode and ready to play music/videos in 10 seconds.... that is the whole point of standby mode.

    Use a carnetix power supply and you won't have to worry about your battery - full support for standby mode...

    Sure. Send me a video camera and I'd be happy to.

    10 seconds flat to come out of hibernate, from power on to music blasting in road runner. Downgrading to 256mb ram knocked off several seconds. But I can't seem to break 10 seconds, despite far too much time spent trying. A 7200rpm drive would probably do it. But they're power hungry.

    With my latest XP build, cold boot will hopefully be 10 seconds too (with internet disabled), which I prefer over hibernate, since the powermate is somewhat iffy with hibernate. My current build gives me 12 seconds to music with RR as shell when first installed, but as it's been installed a few months it's slowed down. I won't miss the registry when MS finally kills it.

    That boot time isn't particularly unique, although it represent hundreds of hours stripping windows and testing to see if everything still works. There's a number of people here and on msfn with better times for similar hardware.

    I know about quick boot speeds I have a video in my thread proving it. Standby isn't really good because its hard on your battery. A normal boot takes too much work to stripe out windows to then find you took the wrong thing out and XXXX software or driver won't load. I feel hibernate is a good blend of both. I just like when people claim that speed to post hardware and a camera phone video or camera video. I am not bashin you, good work man!

    i'm running a 7200 drive, what steps did you take to get to 10 seconds?

    i didn't realise that not every mobo can do S3 so i might not even be able to use standby

    For hibernate

    go to msconfig

    Boot.ini ADVANCED

    /maxmex = 256

    and optimize your bios and disable whatever your not using.


    Even with my 512 stick becuase of my super boot bios I was able to get 10 seconds check my video.
