What is Wait Time?

Wait Time is a utility that lets you set the the period of time your Macintosh waits before searching the SCSI bus for a bootable hard disk drive.  If the wait time is too short, internal drives that take several seconds to spin up to speed may not be seen on the SCSI bus (particularly Macs with very fast processors) and hence, won't boot your Mac.  If you wait too long, you may grow old before your Mac boots, but it won't keep your Mac from booting properly.  15 seconds is the standard setting. Zero seconds defaults to 15 seconds.  The optimal setting varies depending on the size of the drive, its start-up speed, and the speed of the CPU.
