    1 Second Start Up
    I use a program on my computer called MacPilot (some of you prolly know it). Basically it allows you to really mess with your system behavior etc. From startup I had it set for a "1 second" startup delay from login. It was blazing fast but now its dropped back to it's default even-though its still set to 1 second.

    Any help?

    Thanks for your time.

    I don't know but do you really want to bypass RAM, SMART and other hardware related checks/ tests?

    I was under the understanding that it does those checks before the log in screen (much in the same way as a windows machine). I believe it just dedicates the cpu to literally firing everything up right of the start, then it drops down to a normal cpu load.

    Am I wrong, it certainly is more than just possible.

    Then that really isn't a "one second startup"... more like a "one second login".

    Not quite the same thing.

    Oh, after login. You're not counting the time before that as startup time.

    Yea, all that happens before login.
