Noticed this only recently, it gets to the Republic of Gamers screen (as usual) and then it sits there for about a minute. Then the monitor blacks out and then the ROG screen then appears again for another little while before then the spinning dots appear and Windows loads. But what might be happening to cause this and could it be a potential concern Windows will stop booting entirely?

I normally leave my DS computer on 24/7. Guess what? No lag time on start-up.    

4 1/2 years and counting. Previous rig went 7 1/2 years and never quit on me, I just had to get a better rig because I never upgraded anything but storage. The only part that ever failed was a 200MM fan on the windowed side of the case about 7 years in.

You don't have to leave it on all the time like crazy old-school Cretae, but maybe if you know you'll be back at it soon, you can leave it on to cut back on annoyance. I do not use sleep or hibernate ever, I just manually turn off my monitor. The reason is an old-timey concern that regularly shooting voltage through your electronics shortens lifespan. It's a debate that has gone on for years AFAIK.

Yep, that's it. I tend to visit my computer several times a day. Even though the boot times have shrunk to pretty minimal, I like just flipping on the monitor and getting right into it.
