Helpdesk issue resolution time (poll?)

I know many helpdesk organizations have SLAs around attending to a problem within X hours.  I'm looking to see if anybody has SLAs around resolving a percentage of problems within the first day or two.  And to know what those SLAs are.  

What I have in mind is for the SLA to say we would resolve 80% of new tickets within 24 or 48 hours.  I'm trying to figure out if 80% is the right percentage or what it should be.

I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

I have SLA's based on X hours, not %, but about 80% resolved within 24/48 hours isn't a bad statistic to be aiming for.
Our SLA gives an initial repsonse time of 8 hours and resolution time of 3 days, for which we hit 100% success. So you could aim higher. Although this does depend on complexity of tickets, change requirements, user availability etc.
Would be interesting to read other people thoughts on this.

Considering 99% of the industry run on SLA's, i'm suprised there was no more uptake on that. Oh well, I blame the election. :-)
