.Connection.Open() takes about 5 seconds to execute.  Not sure why.

I am using SQL Server Express 2005 and my SQL statement is small(under 5 fields).

My SQL Server is local, but i have tested on a network SQL Server and it takes just as long.  I would have thought this would be almost instant.

Because of the time issue it inturn makes my website run sluggish.

Am I better off using OLEDB? Or does it not matter. (see code below)

My IIS is 6.0
I am running.Net 2.0/3.5
Coding in VS 2008

Could it be something in my web.config?
my connection string

"UID=MySite;PWD=MySite;server=WORK5\SQLEXPRESS;database=MySite;"
 
 

    Public Shared Function GetDataReader(ByVal SQLStatement As String, ByVal ConnectionString As String) As SqlDataReader
 

        Dim dr As SqlDataReader

        Dim cmd As New SqlCommand()
 

        With cmd

            .Connection = New SqlConnection(ConnectionString)

            .Connection.Open()
 

            .CommandText = SQLStatement

            dr = .ExecuteReader(CommandBehavior.CloseConnection)

        End With
 

        Return dr

    End Function

    Public Shared Function GetDataReader(ByVal SQLStatement As String, ByVal ConnectionString As String) As OleDbDataReader
 

        Dim dr As OleDbDataReader

        Dim cmd As New OleDbCommand
 

        With cmd

            .Connection = New OleDbConnection(ConnectionString) '

            .Connection.Open()

            .CommandText = SQLStatement

            dr = .ExecuteReader(CommandBehavior.CloseConnection)

        End With

        Return dr

    End Function

>>Am I better off using OLEDB?

No, the SqlConnection will give you better performance than the OleDBConnection.

If you go out to a command prompt and PING WORKS5, how quickly do you get a response?  I'm wondering about a name resolution problem.

OK, it seems that the SQL Server Express is going to sleep. Related links:

pardon my ignorance, but I am fairly new to SQL Server (formly a Access guy) where in SQL can I find the Auto Close /Sleep setting?

That makes sense...b/c it funs like crap the first time, then it is blazing fast after that.  Then if i log in 5 min later it is slow again.

When i open SQL Management Studio
and I right my Database and goto Properties
I see an "Auto Close" setting set to True  is that what I am looking for?

or is it a global SQL setting not a Database specific setting?
