Turned PC off for 9 hours, took longer for screen to turn on?

Does this sound about right? I rarely turn my PC off for long periods of time, but it's absolutely frigid in my house these days, and it was storming outside, so I unplugged everything.
Turned PC back on, and it toko 30-40 sec for it to actually show anything on the screen. I rebooted it after loading into windows, and the boot up process was instant. I assume this has to do with how cold the chips were?

More about turned hours longer screen turn
  1. nope, silicon 'works' better at cold temperatures which is why we like to keep our chips etc cool,
    I think its more likely your system enjoyed its offtime and wanted a lie-in :P

    As much appreciated as the humor is, I am a bit worrisome.
    How can I be sure nothing is wrong with the PC?
  3. Just run it I would say, if any problems persist it may be a sign that somethings truly wrong, but I do honestly think that it was a one-off,
    post back if you do still have worries after a few days :)

  4. If you had been running it for awile and had some updates that needed to be restarted that can make it take longer to boot up???
