    Well it's not letting me upload the video so I guess you'll just have to take my word on it.

    What BIOS is that and do you have anything plugged into USB?
    If so, have you tried turning it on without USB?

    Also FWIW, I pressed start on a stopwatch the moment I pressed the power button and it took 9 seconds to get to the login screen.

    I don't play WoW, but I have never had any battery drain what-so-ever on other games with similar demands.

    Your sure you don't use Fast Startup (hybrid shutdown)?

    I've tried multiple bios, with and without things plugged in, uninstalling free fall sensor, removing secondary drive, fast boot on and hybrid shutdown, plus other things I'm sure.

    Once in to Windows the computer runs amazing.

    @Ultra Male I was just booting Ubuntu 18 and during boot up it said tpm error and I disabled firmware TPM aka fTPM and guess what I just shaved off 3-4 secs when booting off PCIe SSD. On SATA SSD it takes 2 secs to get to Linux login screen.
    So TL;DR: Check for updated Kionixx freefall sensor, disable Intel SGX in BIOS, disable fTPM.
    Dell should stop shipping misconfigured fTPM on non-Windows OS or else disable fTPM altogether from factory.

    Yep that's what it was! I disabled that and the startup time went to 25 seconds :vbtongue: Doesn't really bother me though, I use sleep 95% of the time anyway.

    Shutdown the laptop before putting in the bag because you don't want Freefall sensor to wakeup the laptop.
