It takes 5 minutes to boot in the morning because you consider being able to open a browser and see your Facebook page the end of booting, past network logins, antivirus updates, the corporate IM tool, and everything else.

Call me crazy, but I'd call the time from powering on the machine to arriving at a usable UI a pretty good definition of booting.

You're at Witt's End.
