    I installed 8GB of ram and a new Seagate Momentus non XT hard drive. My boot up time is about 22-24 seconds. Is that good?

    ...

    with a standard hdd it will boot in like 35 seconds...with a real SSD more like 12-17 seconds depending on the SSD and how fresh the install is...as you add more programs booting seems to take a little longer (likely due to more processes starting on boot)

    That's really good; that is nearly as fast as a SSD.

    Mac OS X normally creates a sleepimage to store the content of the RAM into, in case of battery depletion.
    SmartSleep can help set it to something you like and get you sleep times of two seconds.

    That's what I do with my Macs. I never turn them off and only put them to bed. Wake time is usually instant (2-3 seconds) and that is with HDD's and not SSDs.

    Mine takes around 40 seconds to boot into the os.
    I don know whether it's good or not.

    That is about average for the factory drive as it is considerably slower than the Momentus and eons slower than a SSD.
