I'm sorry, but I cannot make out what you are trying to say.

Any mention of a file manager or OOo or 'save file' seems completely off-topic
given the original problem description.

The problem description is about boot up and shutdown.

If a client is configure to mount an NFS filesystem at boot time by having an
entry in /etc/fstab, then it will try to mount that filesystem at boot time.
If the 'bg' option is not given it should block indefinitely until the server
responds. If the 'bg' option is given, it will try for a few seconds (I don't
remember how much - 10 to 30 sounds likely) and then fork and continue trying
in the background while the system goes on to do other things.

So you would expect a delay during boot up.

during shutdown, the client will attempt to tell the server that the filesystem
has been unmounted. This is actually fairly pointless but the protocol
requires it so we do it and it is rarely a problem. We don't wait forever
though - just 10 to 30 seconds and then move on.

I'm sorry if you didn't think my original response was accurate. I assure you
that I believe it is, and I hope this extra information will help you - either
to understand what is happening, or to explain your situation more clearly if I
have misunderstood it.
