ASRock Demos Instant Boot

Motherboard manufacturer ASRock has put out a video showing its new Instant Boot feature that can boot a computer from a full shutdown to Windows XP or Vista 10 times faster than standard PCs -- in other words, about 3 to 4 seconds.

Thanks to this new BIOS feature which can be downloaded and installed on nine of ASRock’s current boards, when the operating system is shut down it goes through a process of rebooting and then hibernates / goes into suspend mode until the user presses the power button again.

Instant Boot will only work on computers that have only one user account and no password protection. Pretty obviously if you have a need for more than one user account there would still be a need for user input to decide which account to boot to.
