SYMPTOMS

When you configure the Windows HotStart feature in Windows Vista to start a program directly from the system startup process, there is a long delay before the program starts. For example, when the computer is asleep, and you press the access button for the program on the front panel of the computer or on the infrared remote control, it may take as long as a minute for the program to start after the computer wakes up.
