    Default time taken by robot.createScreenCapture

    I am taking screenshots of a rectangle using robot class.
    robot.createScreenCapture (rect);

    The time taken on windows7 is different on two differernt machines.

    MachineA (win7 64bit) - 8 core, 2.53 ghz Intel Xeon (screencapture takes 5 ms)
    MachineB (win7 - 64bit) - 8 core, 3.07 Ghz , Intel Core i7 ( (screencapture takes 20-30 ms) ------>>>>PROBLEM MACHINE

    This is a time critical program so this additional 15+ mseconds is throwing things haywire. Does anybody have a clue what could cause this delay ?

    I have tried swapping the Graphic crads but that has made no difference. UAC settings are set to minimum on both machine.

    Appreciate any pointers.

    Forgot to mention that even on WindowsXP with MachineB configuration, I can get screencapture in less than 5 seconds.

    So, MachineB, windows 7 is the only problematic one.
