    Newbie air owner question but when I open the air sometimes it takes 2-3 seconds to see something on the screen. My old macbook was pretty much instant. Am I missing something?

    It takes a few seconds if it has been closed for more than 70 minutes and drops into "deep sleep." That's the mode that lets it retain battery power for up to 30 days. If you have FileVault2 activated, it will add another 1-2 seconds, as well.

    Mine take 3-4 seconds before I can move the cursor.

    I'm not really complaining but it would be nice if it were more like 0-1.
