Here's a registry change that will speed up the time for the start menu to appear. Navigate to

HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Control Panel\Desktop MenuShowDelay

The Windows default is 400, so change this to a smaller value with 0 being the fastest. For some people this can be too fast, so you could try 50 or 100.

As usual, be sure to backup your registry before making any changes.

One problem with this is that it also speeds up all the menu popups, and you may want some delay before they pop up when you mouse over them. :)
