    Random restarts on release 20H2


    I recently installed 20H2 over win7 on my Dell e5440. After a shutdown, windows randomly restarts. Doesn't happen every time and never (so far) more than once in a row. Not a huge problem but mildly annoying - something I would fix if it's not too involved or I could just wait for a windows update.

    Thanks for all help or advice...

    Sorry, didn't notice how many people have already spoken to this. I'll close this and do some research.

    See if turning off Windows fast start up makes a difference:

    No, disabling fast startup didn't help - when I shut down after disabling, the computer restarted immediately...

    I did see this proposed solution as I researched but had not tried it until now.

    Thanks for replying.

    Can you please explain in more details?
    It randomly restarts after a boot, under windows, (heavy or light duty)?

    I don't know what you mean by more detail - I shut down the machine, close the lid and within a few seconds it restarts by itself. Many users have reported this with no fix that I have been able to find.

    With due respect to all who have replied, I think I will just live with this odd behavior for now. It does not happen every time I shut down and I expect Microsoft will fix it eventually.

    Thanks again to all who posted - I'm closing this now.
