LP Alpha - Very long BIOS load time

Hi all,

As far as I go back in history in this forum, I can't find info about this issue.

The bios of the LattePanda alpha takes a very long time boot.
I have to press the power button for at least 5 seconds (on a "normal" computer you need to press the power button for less than 1 seconds).
Furthremore it's not always 5 seconds, but sometimes 6, 7 or even 8 seconds.
Is there a solution to that, so that pressing power button for 1 second would be enough ?

I thought about wiring an external button to one of the arduino pins, write the correct sketch, then wire an output of the arduino to the SW pins on the LP alpha....but it's a very dirty trick.
It wouldn't make the process faster, but at least I could press the button only for a tenth of second.
Thanks.
