Attract mode doesn't download meta data or media the last time I checked, that may have changed though.

If you just want to import games quickly uncheck all the media during the import wizard.

I've had this before, but it was because I somehow didn't select a platform to import under. So LB checked each rom file / game title against the entire games database, rather than a subset. It also pays to uncheck the "Remove roughly-matched duplicate images" setting, even if no media is selected. With no media downloads or checks, imports of 500+ roms take 2-3 seconds.
