Another Snopescope: Fluorescent Bulbs and Energy

How much energy does it take to power up a fluorescent light bulb versus keeping it on?
I read once that turning one on takes energy equivalent to power it for four hours.
This would seem to indicate that the overhead for incandescent bulbs is about 5 minutes.

Thanks,
Banazir
