    Anyone else having a much longer wait on the MBP starting up since the latest firmware update? Now takes longer than my old PC running XP

    My 2.4GHz SR MBP takes 20 seconds. Have you performed a PRAM reset? Check your disk permissions as well.

    Less than a minute. Honestly I don't care I just know it's pretty darn faster than booting XP.

    Turn on your computer. Press Command, Option, P, and R together, before the apple logo comes in.

    Wait for two chimes and then release the keys and let the computer start up.

    Exactly, besides, who reboots enough to notice startup times? Sleep and uptime FTW! Thats why I love macs.

    What taking too long, before Apple logo appears or from beginning to being able use? Either way, you need to degrag and more free space.
