If the gps hasn't been turned on in a while, it will need to download a new ephemeris.  With the new ephemeris, it can 
find it position much faster because it will know pretty close where the satellites are, and how much to offset the 
tracking code.  I left the unit on for about an hour, but without the enable light, I suspect it was just idling waiting 
for commands.
