Optimize Startup For Faster boot Times

Few operating systems seem to boot quickly enough, and unfortunately Ubuntu is amongst them. However, there are four things you can do to reduce delays and generally speed-up startup:
Reducing the boot menu delay
If you dual-boot Ubuntu and Windows on your computer the boot menu appears for 10 seconds, during which you can select either Windows or Ubuntu. If you only have Ubuntu installed, a prompt appears for three seconds telling you that you can hit a key to see the boot menu.

This delay can feasibly be reduced to one second, providing you have quick enough reactions—hitting a key during that second will cause the countdown timer to stop so you can make your choice at leisure.

Alternatively, you can configure the system so the boot menu never appears. This will deny access to the other boot menu options but if Ubuntu is the only operating system on your computer then this could be a good arrangement.
Start by opening the boot menu configuration file in Gedit:
$ gksu gedit /boot/grub/menu.lst
Then search for the line that reads timeout 10 and change the 10 to read either 1, for a one second countdown, or 0, to disable the boot menu completely.
Save the file and then reboot to test the settings
