    I am running Vista x64 with SP1 on a clean install. I have been running
    XP. Unlike others that have posted I am finding Vista takes a tad longer
    to boot but really seems to take longer to shutdown. I have followed the
    tutorials and have made the registry adjustments to 'correct' these
    problems. They don't seem to be making that much of a difference when
    compared to XP boot and shutdown times. Is/are there any other tricks
    available to shorten both of these times. PS. All drivers are 64 bit, 4
    gig mem, 500 gig hard drive, AMD 64x2 4400 processor, MSI motherboard.

    Welcome to the Vista Forums :party:

    In addition to the registry tweaks, I've also implemented readyboost,
    which really cut down on my shutdown and startup times. I'm using 4 GB
    of DDR2 800 Ram and a 4 GB readyboost USB drive. Maybe this might help
    you too. Here's how to set up readyboost:

    I hope this helps.

    Why shut down? Sleep doesn't take long to turn off, and after hitting the
    spacebar I am running with full functionality (including wireless network) in
    less than 10 seconds.

    Just curious: I can see the desire for a quick boot time, but why the
    concern with shutdown? I hit the button and walk away... I don't really care
    how long it takes. :)
