    Mysterious delay after entering logon password

    We're a 2 person office on a little network.

    My partner's Vista laptop just started to pause for about 20 secs after she
    types in her password and hits enter to logon... after a period of no use.

    What might cause this?

    does this occur when she is not connected to the network?

    What kind of network--domain or workgroup--domain seems overkill, but I
    thought I would ask

    gerry...

    I haven't tested to see if the delay occurs if she is not connected to the
    network... but could if you suspect the network connection might be the issue.

    The network is a home workgroup.

    This is what I think may be happening--when she logs on, VISTA is attempting
    to reconnect mapped drives or it is looking for network shares (folders,
    maybe printers)

    Did she map a drive during a previous session? Connect to a shared printer?

    Perhaps a script to reconnect the drive/printer at startup rather than
    having Windows search might be faster.

    Gerry...

    Thanks... I think you're on the right track. I've noticed our mapped drives
    have changed behavior recently and I may be able to solve the problem simply
    by eliminating the mapped drives or remapping them.

    I would not know who to write a script to connect them... so I hope this
    isn't a necessary step to solve the issue.

    I'll work on this and post the good or bad news here tomorrow.
