If you add daemons to the boot process you'll increase boot time, not decrease it. In other words, you'll need to disable any daemons/services that you don't want running in order to decrease boot time.

If a desktop system, keep it running as much as possible (easier on the system as well). If a laptop, and you are moving it around a lot, then think about suspending it for short hops, and hibernation for longer ones. It is a lot faster to get back running, plus you have the advantage of maintaining your system state (open files, applications, etc) in the meantime. I only shut my laptop down (vs suspending or hibernating it) when I am going somewhere more than an hour away in a car or plane.
