It's possible that the window manager has started even though it can't
use the display, so you can't see it.  Although if you normally are
presented with a login screen, that's probably not it.

Is it possible that a shell is starting on a different virtual
terminal (console)?

Incidentally, everything I've seen with publication dates in the last
7 years says that it's no longer worthwhile to worry about SSD wear
from repeated writes.  Any recently-manufactured SSD will probably
outlast an HDD.  I suppose you did mention that you have an old
machine, so maybe you're trying to preserve a very old drive?
