    Yes. Noticed this too.

    A lot more going on under the hood.

    I take it you're using an SSD? It used to take a few seconds to boot. Now it takes several.

    What a drag...

    :p

    On the latest macbook air it takes about 17-20 seconds to boot (13'' i5, 256GB SSD)

    On my ultimate 2010 macbook air it only took 12-13 seconds to boot.


    So, it seems to be the OS that is causing a delay in booting.

    I just times my i5 13" MBA and it took 18. Just got it last week so yeah, between 17-20. Coming from my 2006 MBP which booted in 2:30 I'm not complaining.

    I have found that restart with (Reopen windows) does not work. If I uncheck the option...works fine.

    I was thinking the same thing, but from different standpoint.

    I think i timed the 2011 air (2/64) booting around 15-20 seconds.

    My Netbook booted XP in 4 minutes

    My desktop (quadcore and 6gb ram) boots windows 7 in about 2 minutes till usable.

    < 30 seconds to full use for me is a dream come true!

    Yes and no. Never had any problem with my wireless

    Before Update
    Power Down: 8-45 sec depending on number of things left running in background.
    Power Up: Chime to logon about 5 sec. (file vault). Password to desktop 20-22 secs.

    After Update
    Power Down: 24 sec
    Power Up: Chime to logon about 5 sec. Password to desktop 20 secs.

    SO no big changes for me.

    Noticed that maintenance scripts. http://www.thexlab.com/faqs/maintscripts.html
    had not been run in months.

    Ran daily weekly monthly scripts and shutdown time was back in the 5-20 sec range. Startup time didnt change.
