Sorry it was no help.

There is of course no way for me to know what you have or have not tried.

I did not mean to sound so harsh. It's just that I have done all the normal things like these registry modifications, disabled clearing the page file when shutting down, and so on.

I'm frustrated.

There is also BIOS time. On this desktop that is longer than the boot time. But then I have a lot of devices attached that the BIOS has to check.

I PM'd Cluberti to read your .etl trace output file. He may be traveling at the moment.

The tutorial should be able to get you started on interpreting the results.

May or may not help but my pc started to have a very long shutdown ( 2.5 min ). So I followed all the msconfig and pagefile ideas here. In the end I think I may have solved it by powering off my old Epson Scanner. Suddenly back to shutdown of about 8 secs from the logging off screen.

Will need a few more days of testing but I would suggest you unplug any external drives/printers/scanners etc and see what happens.

Worth a try at least ?

Kari have you looked into any recent driver updates. I know some of them tend to cause shutdown issues from time to time ATI Cat drivers for example.

Also I think you said you checked event viewer but if not you might give it a look - specifically things dealing with drivers.

Here's an example dealing with my UPS driver.....

My two cents.

Sorry guys - I am on a really crappy connection in the middle of nowhere Maine at the moment. What I understand is the issue is, even after SP1 and some routine maintenance, we still have a system here that takes minutes to hibernate or shut down/reboot, yes? If so, if you can get an .etl trace, I can start to investigate why.

Take your time, Cluberti. I can live with this issue but would be very pleased if I got back to normal, faster times.

But that must not be on all systems. After SP1, my reboot time (on the laptop) went up by 1 second, from 51sec to 52 sec. But Hibernate I never use. It is a longer on my desktop. That is because of my very long BIOS time checking all the gear.

Shut Down or Hibernate?
My brother says he always puts his computer on Hibernate because it's much faster to boot up. However, I would like to know if this will cause any long term damage to my computer? If not, I may start Hibernating to shave off like 45 seconds in booting up. If so, I'll stick to Shutting Down.
