Waiting for the UX180P

A reader by the name of "drvg" recently emailed to find out about UX180P startup times.

I ran the clock from switching on the unit’s power to being able to interact with the system normally (opening applications, typing, clicking icons and links, and so on). These aren’t absolute numbers, as everyone’s times will vary slightly according to startup options and installed software (e.g., anti-virus programs aren’t too snappy and usually bog things down a bit). I haven’t reconfigured anything in terms of what Windows automatically loads or doesn’t load, but disabling certain startup items will likely shave off a few extra seconds.

From standby: 6 seconds
From hibernation: 15 seconds
From cold boot to login screen: 49 seconds
From accepted login: 58 seconds

My UX is set to resume from standby/hibernation without a password prompt, so startup will of course be slower if you need to login first (vice versa for the cold boot scenario).

And since I’ll do anything to maintain my longwinded reputation, I also tested the times in reverse.

To standby: 12 seconds
To hibernation: 19 seconds
To complete shut down: 26 seconds
