It sounds like you may be only measuring the cold boot time, and not the full restart time.
Hope this helps.
I stop watched them side to side. started the timer the same time I clicked the restart button. After 10 runs I have concluded that this script adds on average between 15 to 25 seconds to the actual restart time. on 2 of the runs, including the first one, the difference was drastic. I followed the tutorial on the first post, had nothing running in the background. I halted the stop watch as soon as my desktop was visible. The timer prompt would show some time later. So I think its still counting until it can show you the OK button.
Perhaps my PC just doesn't like this thing.
