The times listed below reflect the time it took for the system to power up until the cursor appeared with no busy indicator on the desktop background.
Taking a look at the results, we see the ASUS W2V lands somewhere in the middle of the pack in terms of boot time. It seems logical to expect that the system's Media Center 2005 OS is largely to blame for the increased time, though it is hard to quantify to what extent. Regardless, it is more than acceptable and is not an annoying amount of time.
Once again, we see that the response of the W2V is roughly on average with the rest of the field.
Returning from Hibernation mode, the ASUS notebook begins to climb towards the front of the pack. Overall, the notebook had a good response throughout testing and could easily be further optimized to respond faster by editing which programs and utilities boot with Windows.
