Do you have USB devices connected to the computer? Try disconnecting them.

I had the same kind of issues when my Palm TX was connected when the computer was rebooted.

I had that same problem when the power supply was going out. The computer would take longer and longer to start from when I pressed the power button. After replacing the power supply the computer would start immediately after pressing the power button.

The answer from Snark reminded me of an answer to a similar question, which I thought I had 'favorited' but didn't.

I recall that one of the answers suggested the problem was Legacy USB support in the BIOS, and that it could be turned off.
