Further experimentation

My PC comes with something called "Express Gate" - a bootable linux attached to the motherboard that is theoretically "instant-on". Some brief timings later:
Time to boot to a completely limited OS with a cut-down version of Firefox which can't do addons: 22 seconds.
Time to boot to Windows full desktop and display the full version of Firefox with all of my bookmarks and addons: 65 seconds.
Time to resume from sleep to my complete Windows desktop: 3 seconds (of which 2 seconds is it reconnecting to the network and getting an IP address)

I think I'll stick with the last of these - all of the gain, none of the pain.
