  • Look at /var/log/syslog and/or dmesg at the boot sequence for clues. Also look at the right of the page we are on at all of the "Related" questions --------> – Chris K Dec 24 '14 at 20:45

I found a solution here. Commenting out the lines that read "sleep 40" and "sleep 59" in /etc/init/failsafe.conf solved my problem. Saved the file after commenting, and then reboot. Now, my laptop is booting faster.
