Why does my i5 Boot Up Slowly?

    On pressing the power button on the back of my brand new iMac i5 (Bought in store on Nov 21st), the white screen appears after 5-7 seconds and then the boot time is incredibly fast since I have an SSD installed. But I'm disturbed now with the fact that the white screen takes such a long time and I was wondering if anyone else had a similar issue?

    Should I show this to my local Apple Store Genius bar?

    Go into system preferences and change your start up disk to your HDD, that'll sort it for you ;)

    Thanks but I should have mentioned that I did that and the white screen to apple logo time that was more than 10 seconds improved but the black screen/off state to white screen is still 5-7 seconds which it never was in the earlier iMacs I owned. (I had an iMac 2006 and 2008). I also reset my NVRAM settings to see if that made a difference but NOT.

    What do I do?
