have you ever opened a web.config file directly in VS2010 or VS2008 just to do a quick edit? external to the solution you are in, just like right click web.config open in VS?... we always have this odd delay, it takes about 1 minute to open the file like it has to think about what to do, after that opens fine and saves fine.... every one of our dev machines repos this... always been an odd behavior, and MS always closes our bugs on it as "by design"
Mmm I don't use much ASP.NET (more often than not I typically go the PHP route for web based stuff via VS.PHP, most of the servers I work with are running BSD and I'm not thrilled with Mono in its current state), most of the time I have VS loaded it's for PHP, a desktop application or a system service, some managed, some not. As a guess it's probably reparsing and validating dependencies, etc etc once it sees the file was changed, but I'm the wrong person to ask for troubleshooting ASP.NET.. I don't recall a delay though.

Make sure you've updated to service pack 1. VS2010 loads almost instantly for me whether it's the first start of the day or 10th.
In my case it's probably my addons.. I have a bunch, and I know
CodeRush/Refactor Pro is one of my biggest offenders. I can live with the delay though.. I love those addons to death. If I have it disabled though yea mine's near instant to start. That's on a current OS mind you; on a test VM running ye olde XP it's significantly longer thanks to a lack of SuperFetch.
