I think that's something everyone has wondered.
From hitting the power button how long does it take to load all applications and for the desktop to finalise ? And same again for a full shutdown ?
My Vista laptop takes (currently) around 1 min 45secs to load all, and anywhere from as little as 15 secs to as much as 45secs or so to fully shutdown. It's usually somewhese in the middle :)
