  • Control Startup Applications:

    The less programs you have loading on bootup, the faster your system should be. You can control these startup applications from the system settings --> applications --> startup

    (I don't have many apps to show )


  • Install BootUp-Manager from software center to disable any un-necessary services.

  • Use bootchart to produce detailed graphs of what takes time during boot.
    Install it from software center. After installation, reboot your system, the bootchart is in /var/log/bootchart as a .png file. It might help in deciding what to remove (or disable).

  • @Ravan Do you use e4rat.My laptop is taking about one minute to boot freya while Windows 10 boots in 25 seconds (5400rpm HDD, UEFI). I am wondering if it will break freya – Suici Doga Apr 11 '16 at 9:54
