    I'm at <13 seconds to full desktop. How long is yours taking and what do you have loaded/installed that starts up with the OS?

    My SP4 is blazing fast on start up. So much so that I never bother to utilize SLEEP. It's the fastest loading device I own. I'm amazed that it gets to full desktop in 13-14 secs, and that includes loading Dropbox, OneDrive and iCloud.

    My SP4 is super quick as well, as long as ....

    1) the keyboard is not flipped back, or
    2) I have no usb drives plugged in.

    Otherwise it takes much longer, but still bearable.

    Just tested my core M. From a cold boot to lock screen was 9 seconds.

    you can check the log and see if there is anything causing it.
    right click this pc and choose manage or right click start, choose run and enter compmgmt.msc
    expand event viewer/ application and service logs/ Microsoft/ windows/ diagnostics-performance/ operational
    check the boot performance monitoring entries, see if any are critical.
    if not, you can still check the individual entries. just click to highlight and then in the lower pane, select the details tab.
    look for anything taking a long time. the durations are in milliseconds, so add a decimal 3 places from the right to get the number of seconds

    Just tested it and I think you are right. My slow times are result of power button not always responding. When it reponds, it is quick.

    I also have the same problem when the type cover is fold back. Once the type cover is detached, the problem is gone. Any solution so far?

    I am not experiencing any problems with startup at this moment. It is fine. It does not depend on the type cover. Startup is really quick with windows hello, btw

    I have same experience as you have, ac_wmcaa. When I fold the cover back, it is slow.
