I am trying to understand policy application for our windows 2008 r2 AD .

Why does the a computer policy run every time at startup when nothing changes in that policy?  The default policy has password item, and a default banner item, that doesnt change.  Yet it takes a full minute to process it everytime someone logs in.

Wouldn't it be more efficient if it didn't apply at startup if it didnt change , that would save all kinds of time.   Is there a way to do this?

2)  Does your computer have to read every policy even if nothing is configured,  How do I make it so it doesn't read my local policy.   Won't this save time.

3)When you apply a group policy, does your workstation retain that policy even if logged off the network.  For example will my laptop retain those settings?
