    FYI, Windows 8 inherently times each restart and makes that information available as an Event Viewer Log. See here:

    So, the VBS script consistently timed my restarts at 27 seconds (see my previous post) to completely restart; however, the Windows Event Logs show my restart times to be in the 18-19 second range. Not sure why they are so different. Anyway, I like the 18 second restart time better! BTW, there is also a Shutdown Timer Log available too!

    Well, you can simply just use a simple clock and calculate, how much it really takes

    For a 5-6 years old Latitude D630 with Core2 Duo CPU (2.2 GHz), it's not too bad:

    I remember doing this on the Sevenforums but this number can be altered dramatically if you disable certain programs running in your system tray or in the background prior to shutdown (which plays a larger role in my computers performance as my boot time is literally 6 seconds and that includes swiping my fingerprint reader). Either way I am very happy with Windows 8 when it comes to performance.

    Normal reboot with tool:

    Disabled Antivirus/Firewall software prior to reboot:

    For all of you security buffs out there, how impressive was this considering I run NIS 2013 with Aggressive Boot Protection? A 4 second boot performance change makes moot many arguments of Symantec programs being resource hogs to say the least.

    WEI:

    The point is, it is fun to see who has the "fastest" but too many variables come into play to make this a valid benchmark of or systems. I bet I could get my system down into the 30 second rage with enough tweaking prior to reboot.

    So take these numbers with a grain of salt just like you should with the WEI. I ran this script three years ago on a very old Dell Inspiron 530 desktop and could get the numbers down by 20 seconds just by disabling the password ( which was mighty long lol) The reality is that we all have pretty kickass systems whether they are home built rigs or OEM thanks much to CPUS's using less power and more cores and the memory price drops!
