Virtual Terminals


I was wondering what kinds of things affect how fast my computer can switch from x to a virtual terminal and back. ATM it takes about a second or two, which is minorly annoying. I would really like it if I were pointed in the direction of something on the process tht it goes through when it does the switch. I would find it enlightening.

Thank you

IMHO it's mostly resolution change. Ctrl+'+'/'-' takes similar amount of time.
