Hmm. I usually have the other problem, especially with laptops. Shutting
down due to low battery only to have it wait to do updates while there's
a chance the updates won't matter because it's going to crash soon is
scarier than booting up and doing updates (presumably you have juice
available when booting). There's also the "I need to be somewhere" case
where shutting down fast is more important than booting fast (airplane
take off, losing track of time before class, etc.).
Either way, it certainly isn't an obvious either-or issue. The obvious
solution, to me, is to have mind-reading computers, but I think that may
have one or two other consequences with it.
