Hey

What OS are you using ?

in windows 7, you could use the "Eventviewer".
Type this in the "Run" box: eventvwr
Select "Windows log".
Look for a Source called "Kernel-General" it wil show you both the shutdown and startup time on a PC.

Here is a little addition to San3L's post.

Here is the exact location of the boot and shutdown logs:

1. Open EventViewer

2. Navigate to Application and Services Logs -> Microsoft -> Windows -> Diagnostics-Performance

3. Select the Operational log

4. Look for events with one of the following Task Category:
- Boot Performance Monitoring
- Shutdown Performance Monitoring

4. Once you select an event, you can see the exact:
 Boot Duration
 Boot Duration
Shutdown Duration

 Shutdown Duration
The boot and shutdown times are in milliseconds (ms), so just divide it by 1,000 to get seconds.

Side Note: Don't pay attention to my enormously long Shutdown and Boot times in the screenshots. I took them in a test Vmware environment which doesn't have enough RAM :)
