Re: Boot time and Power Manager

How does one disable or change he options for rapidboot? I can not find anything on it except some support files in the lenovo folder on my computer.

Re: Boot time and Power Manager

It should be in add and remove programs, if not you may have not installed it if you did a clean installation of windows after getting your laptop.

Re: Boot time and Power Manager

As it was with ColonelONeill I startup my machine within 14-15 seconds when set to maximum performance in the power manager. When set to maximum battery life it takes some 20-21 seconds which is still very nice.

 

I am quite happy with this speed if you imagine that my last clean Windows setup is now more than 4 month ago. Smiley Very Happy

Re: Boot time and Power Manager

Yes playing around with power manager is crucial ot getthing those fast speeds. I had to do a reformat last night due to some other factors. Now I'm having trouble getting my boot time to 26 seconds on balanced battery plan. Frustrating! haha.

Re: Boot time and Power Manager

Heh, I'm still running my preload Windows from way out in August 2011.

If you're on a just installed Windows, run
C:\Windows\Microsoft.NET\Framework\v2.0.50727\ngen.exe executequeueditems
It forces the compilation of .NET binaries. Might help with the boots.

Re: Boot time and Power Manager

that did the just the trick! one other thing ppl using Ccleaner, it kills the mssearch index everytime it runs so uncheck that for faster boottimes since i think the rebuild of the index starts immediately on startup.
