    laptop boots slowly

    Since I upgraded (last friday) from 10.04 to 12.04, my laptop boots (since I select in grub kernel ubuntu 12.04 till I have my desktop available, 1 minute and thirty seconds) slowly.

    I would like to have advice abou what starting apps can I disable. As my laptop is not a tablet, can I safely disable Onboards app from the beginning?, what more of them can I disable?.

    Also, I use evolution as email software and pidgin for chat. Can I safely uninstall thunderbird and empathy in order to get a quick boot up?.

    Any other advice to make boots up time shorter is welcome.

    I add my laptop specs.

    Thankyou in advance

    You may want to take a look at this.
    I have not tried it! So use it on your own risk!

    Thankyou very much, but unfortunately I am using ext3 in my filesystem, so I cannot use this software.

    Bump...

    Onboards disabled, it cannot seem to have damage my system.

    Is it of any use to uninstall empathy or thunderbird ( I don't use them) in order to get a quick boot?

    I am using gnome fallback

    Rebump....

    I would like to receive some advice about what I can uninstall in order to get a quick boot without compromising my system. Or any other tips and ideas to reduce boot time.

    In particular, what about Thunderbird, gwibber, telepathy?.

    I add more information:

    Since I click on selected kernel to boot in grub till I obtain the login screen to boot desktop: 45 seconds ( I think it is a reasonably good boot time).

    Since I click on enter after introducing my password in login screen till gnome fallback desktop is usable, 40 seconds too. (I think this is the time which is not reasonable). How can I reduce it?
