    Windows 10

    Windows starts by itself when shutdown

    Just Yesterday upgraded from 8.1 to 10 with out any problems. But, Unless fast start up is disabled, windows will start by itself a few minutes later after I shutdown. Did not have this problem before with 8.1.

    Always had fast startup selected, matter of fact, never had to worry about it, had no problems when shutting down, it stayed off until I turned it on. Now since upgraded to 10, the only solution so far to stop the computer from starting up by itself after shutdown, is to disable fast start.

    Thanks for any help!

    Hi, it's a known issue for some configurations, where doing exactly what you've done has been found to be a 'fix'.

    Similar: if you search (e.g) this forum for 'restart automatically' 'restart after shutdown' etc you'll find many many threads... enough to - er- send you to sleep.

    Amongst those there may be a hint.. good luck.

    E.g. same conclusion as yours:
