Go to your start menu and find the option that says run and type in msconfig. It will bring up a list of startup services that start with every boot. they usually slow your startup times way down. A lot of times, there will be programs and drivers loading for devices you may or may not have. If you've ever plugged in a external hard drive, or any device for that matter, it will load the drivers every time you start your computer. also, programs that you don't need start up too. like AOL or things that start in your system tray. You know, yahoo messenger, AIM, Quicktime and pretty much everything in between.
I don't know if that's what you were looking for or not. I don't fully understand it. I know that I stopped thing I knew I didn't need and it changed my boot time from 5 to 6 minutes down to around a minute.
just google msconfig.
you might find a better explanation by someone smart. =)

When you press your power button your system goes to sleep mode as per your system settings. To awake your system just press any key or 'Awake Key' (if its present on your keyboard), then your system will be back. No need to wait.
Waiting for 10 or 15 or even 30 minutes doesn't make much sense to me.
What kind of flash drive or drives do you use? .. USB Thumb/Pen/Flash drive? ..
If your flash drives in "My Computer" folder just happen to disappear, does the computer still working or freezed state?
When you say your computer does not want to start on AT ALL.' the machine is not running at all or just that the operating system is not booting up?
