    system idle doesn't do anything, it only looks like its using resources, don't worry about it

    Speed up shutdown
    try this

    open regedit


    then change waittokillservicetimeout to a lower number like 3000 or 4000 (or lower)...that way xp will wait less time before killing services as it shuts down

    Speed up bootup - look at this thread
