    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...

    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 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.
    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.
