When the ATMega328P is powered up it first runs the bootloader to configure its self. Then it starts to run the program by assigning memory space to variables, etc. This is what is taking up the first few seconds. A possible solution to your problem would be to keep the power applied and use the sleep mode. If it is done correctly, the processor will only consume microamps when it is sleeping. Use the "on" switch to wake it up and it should be ready to go.

I would not expect the ATmega328 to take more than 1ms to startup unless there is an intentional delay embedded in the code.
