Default Oil Change Method

I've read how some people disable the ignition and crank the car over to get oil thoughout the engine before starting. (pull cam sensor connection or other methods).

Yesterday I did my typical method of running the car for a minute or two before draining the oil. I then quickly drain the oil, put on a new filter with oil poured in it, and get it restarted. I just have the idiot light and this was my first time really watching it when starting the car after an oil change. It didn't seem to go out any slower than when the car sits overnight. I like to see what other people do.
