    you mean when you turn on your pc?

    the bios looks for attached hardware if it finds the minimum required hardware to successfully boot then it boots

    lasts seconds--depends on your hardware how long but under 1 minute

    Oh, I thank you. I thought it was some hour long drawn out test that you fall asleep watching happen.

    once the display turns on can you simply tap the two pins and then turn off the psu? is this not safe or is there a way to power off safely via bios. thanks.
