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.
