    since latest updates: computers turn on differently


    Good morning,

    I have two virtually identical Windows 10 machines (which you can look up below) that boot and are unlocked via my password. Both machines are connected to my Microsoft email account.

    Since the latest updates both machines boot differently from before. Machine A does not do a memory test and enters Windows 10 directly without the memory count etc (yes I have looked at the bios: it is unchanged, I think). Machine B's behavior is different. Previously after shutdown I was able to boot the machine by typing a key on my keyboard (after closing down via "shut down"). Now I have to push the on/off button on the computer.

    Neither is a big deal, to be sure. But I am flummoxed.

    Thanks in advance for your help.

    Curious- pressing a button like that sounds more like resuming from sleep than from shutdown.

    How do you shutdown the computers, especially B?

    Check your Power Plan settings as the active plan for B may have gotten changed.

    machine seems to have fixed itself. bizarre as is the origin of the problem.
    checked --as all suggested--power settings and they were unchanged.
    i'll keep you posted about spontaneous changes, if any.
    thank you all!!
