    I know it can be done. I was using nView to do it earlier, but the program was causing problems with my startup (lots of beeps).

    Is there a way to do this manually via a registry tweak?

    Turn off the Fade/Scroll effect from Display Properties.
    Open up regedit, and go to this key:
    HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Control Panel\Desktop

    and change the value of MenuShowDelay to 0

    Logout/reboot, and check if that helps :)

    That works. I had already done the registry hack. I never turned off the Fade Effect though. Thanks!

    You should turn off window animations throuth the visual effects menu or in the registry at
    HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Control Panel\desktop\WindowMetrics
    set string MinAnimate equal to 0
    That speeds up min/max significantly
