    is this considered normal?

    when i get into my model s in the morning or after long period of no activity(i dont know if this is the right term) i assume the car idles and does a shut down of the system after awhile?

    it takes the cluster about 10 secs to load up, it will show the T logo with a black background. the center touchscreen loads up almost instantly.

    its a 2012 signature model s

    Old instrument clusters weren't instant-on either. I worked on them before and they also have around a 10 second boot time, but in an ICE all of that time is masked by the ignition process. We even built in a needle sweep and a multi-second christmas lights sequence to mask the amount of time the user thought it took before the instrument cluster was ready…

    For what it's worth it feels slower to me lately than it has been a few months ago.

    10 sec to boot is fine. If you want it to be fast, you. An turn off energy save mode but it will drain more battery just sitting there as it keeps system ready.
