    Sorry if this has been covered before.

    How long is a typical boot-up time from complete shutoff?

    My two-day-old 32 gig Touch takes about 15 seconds to boot up from completely off until I see screen icons appear. The Apple logo appears fairly quickly but the icons take a while

    Is this normal?

    Thanks.

    I'd say it's completely normal. My 16GB 'touch has an identical boot time from OFF ... always has.

    Why, do you somehow think that's too long :confused:

    I'm coming from a Palm TX.

    The Palm is up and running immediately after pressing the ON button.

    That's because all you do is put it into standby mode. It's like pressing the sleep/wake button on your iPhone.

    As akonradi said, your Palm must have been in sleep/hibernate mode to turn on instantly. (You can put your 'touch in SLEEP mode by simply pressing and releasing the button on the top left corner ... wake it by pressing and releasing the HOME button, then "Slide to Unlock" ...)

    When booting any device from a completly POWER OFF state, it takes time for the OS to initialize, start running, and present the user interface. However, 15 seconds to accomplish this on a 'touch or iPhone IS instantaneous compared to Vista for example.

    15 seconds is normal on startup for any of the touchs.

    Just hit the sleep/wake button instead.
    You won't be wasting any battery as lkong as wi fi is off and your not playing music.
    hope that helps

    15 secs is about right for mine - guess that's normal.
