If you’ve installed a lot of applications in Ubuntu, you may have noticed that takes longer for your system to boot up. Some applications are automatically run when you boot up your Ubuntu system and this process uses up resources as Ubuntu boots.
However, you can control which applications run when you boot up Ubuntu and also specify a time delay for each application, so you don’t have every startup application running at boot time. The time delay can be used to stagger when the startup applications run, saving your resources.
