I too saw the same symptoms several years ago, and when I deleted the bluetooth driver on the PC it went away. Seems that when the IDE starts, it has to ask the OS for what available serial ports there are and that would trigger a bluetooth search for possible active links, which requires retries and timeout and such, so you ended up with the big delay to start. Funny I though they fixed that problem in later IDE releases, but I've never re-installed my bluetooth drivers to see if that is a fact or not?LEfty
