"But I'm impressed with the handling of function code sequences and some other usefull functions. But an editor should be light and dont take a long time to start."

You know, vim has loads of useful features, and is still pretty lightweight and fast to start... it's not the most newbie-friendly editor, but I think it's probably worth the time and effort to learn. Alternatively, [x]emacs is also good, but doesn't quite fit your "light" and "dont take a long time to start" criteria as well.

Both vim and emacs easily outdo Textpad for functionality (and I've extensively used Textpad, so I know how much it can do). Don't let their scary first impressions fool you! I'd recommend vim or emacs over any other editor, anyday (I'm a vim user), even new-fangled IDEs with lots of eye-candy :)
