I have never understood the fascination with boot times. At my company, and at just about every company I have worked, no one EVER turns off their PC. I do the same at home. The 3 PC's, server, and laptop I own are always on.

In the event I need to reboot, I go grab a cup of coffee and come back in to a log in screen.

So what?

[ADDITION]
What about AFTER boot/login? On a typical dev machine there are countless apps that need to start up before you can become productive. So your boot time of +/-19 seconds to the login screen really isn't a good measure of when you're "up & running"... IMHO.
If it's not broken, fix it until it is
