Sorry I exaggerated a bit. It's about 9 seconds. I didn't show the video of disconnecting power for 1 minute but I can assure you it boots at the same speed as the video. But I think I can get it close to 6 if I get a faster drive in it.6 seconds from power button to desktop? It waking up from sleep (not booting up).
Shutdown your wifes pc and disconnect it from power for 1 minute. Measure boot process after that.
If that is a laptop with internal battery, then this will not work obviously.
