Usually what happens when you shutdown your windows machines  : Kills all processes, kernel shuts down, and during startup : Loads kernel and starts all apps

What MS have done in Windows 8 : Kernel is set to hibernate with less write data to disk, so while starting up, the kernel resumes almost instantly after POST ( power on self test )

Microsoft claims this process makes Windows 8 50-70% faster than the current boot times. Hard to accept ? Well, they got a video demo for that, warning : dont blink
