    A few days ago, I did an update on my Mac which practically made my user account unaccessible. So, I went to the apple store and the genius bar. They wiped it clean and added a new OS.

    Now I received it back. And all the sudden Instant-On works like one second. Before, it would take me about 5-10 seconds.

    Now, thats quite odd.

    Did they just wipe out the install-drive or the whole hard drive including the recovery-hd?

    So, clearly, there were some settings somewhere that were broken.

    I have no idea. I sent it in, they couldn't fix it. I had to get home for some food. I came back the next day and it was a brand new Lion running 10.7.2 preloaded.

    And for some reason the Instant-On was working. The recovery utility still seems intact though.
