    When I start of my computer, it can be really slow (2012 MBP 13")

    I also find when it's on, and I shut the lid, essentially putting it to sleep, when I reopen it, it doesn't automatically come on, I have to jab the keys and move the mouse sometimes several times.

    Is this normal, and if it is when I get a SSD will this change?

    Its has to be your hard drive , cause I have a 4 years old MacBook pro with apple ssd and it works instantly

    Ah right, so hopefully getting an SSD will sort this out!

    Im guessing you have a 5400rpm drive installed?
    I had the stock 7200rpm drive and I felt that was slow (about 20 sec to boot).
    After I installed an SSD, it came all the way down to 9~11 seconds.
    Extremely fast on boot as well as application start up.

    I have 8 applications on start up and they are ready as soon as the computer comes to the desktop.

    I'm not sure what I have, it's the one that came with the lowest end 13" 2012 MBP :)

    Although I'd highly recommend getting a SSD, I myself have a 5400rpm HD and never have any start-up or wake-up delays.
