Time is important, and for others, it's simply just being impatient. Having your computer start up as quickly as possible is usually a plus for anyone. If you have Windows 8, the start up times have drastically improved compared to older systems, Win7, WinXP. You want to speed up things ever faster, just disable the lock screen.
The lock screen is a nice little addition, but not necessary for PC users. It's just a cover for the login screen that tells you the time, weather, and date. To get to the login screen, you can drag it up and away, hit escape, or click on it. To get rid of it completely, follow these quick guide.
