hi all,

in trying to reduce startup/logon times. i'm reviewing a policy that
has "always wait for network at computer startup or logon" set to
enabled. in my testing ou, i've disabled it and startup times have
decreased by around a min. apparently the default setting is disabled,
but i'd like to hear about people's opinions on this setting? should
it be on or off.

additionally, in regards to the startup slowness, i notice there seems
to be a long wait at "applying computer settings". what exactly occurs
here? i've used policy reporter and it shows that during machine
policy refresh, establishing the link speed and determining it is a
fast link takes less than a second, there is then a 20-30 sec delay in
the log before anything else starts happening, can anyone shed some
light on this?

thanks,

daniel.
