Whoa. So then between shut down and your mobo's POST, that's 52 seconds that you're having to wait in addition to the ~16 seconds of just Windows starting up.
It will idle roughly ~10 seconds post-shutdown before initializing its POST sequence, which then takes another ~15 seconds to complete before finally engaging in the actual booting of the OS, of which takes roughly ~8 seconds to complete.
What's sad, specifically the time to POST, is that the time given is With various other controllers (including both PATA & SAS, each with their own individual boot roms) being disabled to improve the startup time.
If they weren't, it would be another ~5-10 seconds.
