I'm trying to determine, even after a visit to the Apple store and clean install, if my boot up time is sub-optimal. It's still taking over a minute to bootup to the desktop (from the start up sound). What's ya'lls times for booting up?

Not everyone leaves their computers on 24/7. When I go out to locations I would rather not carry my laptop around while it's sleeping. The newer MBPs seem to be better at staying asleep with the lid closed than past Apple laptops because there have been reports of past laptops' lid accidentally opening waking up the computers and because they are in nice well insulted laptop bags their laptops ended up frying itself.
Bootup time is not a litmus test for a failing hard drive. Download SmartReporter or something similar that reads the SMART status of the drive. That will tell you if there are excessive errors being reported by the drive's controller.Because I'm trying to solve an issue with my MBP in which I believe I have a failing HDD
Anyways. Switched out the Seagate hard drive for a Hitachi. Boot up on the Hitachi is back to what I have been accustomed to, which is 30-40 seconds.
I'm chalking this up to a faulty Seagate (which is my 2nd in less than a year plus an External Desktop) drive. No longer will I use Seagate.
I cold boot my MBP almost every day.
