For the first 39 seconds the screen white. It takes another 25 seconds for the imac to be in watcha you call it--standby mode.

In all 64 seconds.

Me with a Core i5 - 8GB, 1TB

1) Press POWER Button to White Screen --- 5-7 Seconds -- -WEIRD this, it never happened on my prev iMac 2008 (3.0Ghz C2D).
2) White Screen/Apple to Disk Read --- 3-5 Seconds
3) Disk Read --- 10-15 Seconds
4) To Desktop - 7-10 Seconds

TOTAL --- 30-35 Seconds

Just wanted to mention that my fully loaded MBP 2009 with a OCZ Vertex 60GB takes 15-18 seconds in all for boot up. (Disk Read to Desktop < 10 seconds)

My i5 did that the first two boots, now I boot at 30 secs consistently from a dead start power up.

I have 27" core 2 Duo. Should I have the HDD selected as the booted up disk? I have to check on that. Hoe do I do that? System preferences?

That seems a bit long, do you have the HDD selected as the boot up disk?

I have a Vertex 120 GB SSD in my 2009 Macbook Pro and it takes my laptop 28 seconds to a full boot:confused: I don't see how you get 15-18 seconds to a full boot from the time you push the power button in 15-18 seconds.:confused:
