Does the HMC409 Power Amplifier have a Startup Time?

I was reading the datasheet, and it mentions a switching speed with regard to the Vpd input is 20ns. However, the bias current of the device is 10mA, which is too much for my application to leave running the whole time, so I would like to turn off the power rails for the device during long periods of no use. Is there any timing data from supplying Vcc until the device is operational, or does that depend on the bias capacitors used? Any help would be nice.
