FREECELL
Under Game Options, change the game to #10913. This is the fastest game of Freecell to beat and even taking time with the solution can be done in 1:30. It can easily be driven below a minute, if not 0:30 with a bit of repetition for this purpose. Solution is below which only takes into account your own moves.

*** Spoiler - click to reveal ***


This is also the best method for winning 100 games of Solitaire, so the repetition will likely get it below a minute, if not significantly lower.

This leaves 4:30 for both Klondike and Spider, though Spider typically takes longer to complete. As you cannot set seeds like Freecell, this is practice, repetition, changed settings and a bit of luck. Klondike should be set to Draw 1, and Spider Solitaire as Single Suit.

For reference, my final times were 2:16 for Klondike, 3:00 for Spider, and 0:08 for Freecell.
