Whenever i am away from my computer for a while like an hour or two, and come back it seems to take a while to "warm up". the first thing i do is start playing music (media monkey), then usually start opera. First it takes a while before any noise, then the music jumpy for a few seconds, then it's good. and it takes longer to open opera, than if i were to close it then open it back up. It's not a problem, it just seems weird. I have process explorer, and no graphs spike until opera actually opens. Is it just taking a while to turn off background processes like system idle process?

This will depend on your power saving options that are set in your system's BIOS and within Windows. Once components have been powered down/set to "inactive" - it'll take some time to re-initialize them in order to get them back up and running properly.

Has this always happened, or is it just recently that it's started? There's other things that can cause this (such as a misbehaving program that doesn't work well with the power saving stuff), so it'll take some troubleshooting to isolate it.
