    My friend left a TiBook with me recently for me to take a look at. I noticed that after pressing the power button, it takes a short while for the screen to initialize. I hear the hard disk work immediately but the screen doesnt come on until 20-30 seconds later (estimate). The machine has 512MB of ram. I think that the machine is initializing the ram before the screen goes on. Is this normal?

    My TiPB does something similar, and always has from what i remember. Hit the power button, hear the HD, the chime, then the screen comes on. I just think that is how it starts up. That said, i never really paid attention to other people's TiPBs when they started them up! :D
    I would say my screen comes on after about 8-12 seconds, but i have not timed it.
