Improving boot and shutdown times on a superfast laptop

    Vista Business, Core 2 Duo 2.4GHz with 4GB RAM plus 4GB
    ReadyBoost. It's the Sony SZ with the hybrid (flash plus
    spindle) drive, and apparently Vista has learned a lot
    about how I use the system. This installation is rock
    solid and has my confidence - I have yet to see a crash.

    Speedy ON-OFF is important to me as this unit goes back
    and forth to the office and is a desktop replacement at
    each end, and it travels a lot to other offices as well.

    After some experimenting, it will reliably SLEEP in 6-7
    seconds, and AWAKEN in 4-5 seconds. SHUTDOWN takes
    longer at 20 seconds, and BOOT is a problem at well over
    a minute.

    What can I do to improve BOOT time?

    If Vista boots in 60-90 seconds, I think that is the best you can do, unless
    you have preinstalled crapware that can be removed.
