Can anyone provide an explanation as to why a light fixture would have a noticeable delay between when the light switch was flipped and when the lights turn on. I have this situation occurring in my hallway where I have 2 fixtures with 3 G4 base halogen lamps each. It only happens if the lights have been off for a length of time (15 minutes +)

I am not sure but I'll check. The other thing is that I have a larger model of the same fixture in the living room with 6 lamps instead of 3 and it does not have the delay. I guess it would most likely have a different transformer.
