    The problem is Ms has it set automatically, and set as recommended. Is there a difference between fast startup in the windows environment and the bios?

    Good stuff. IMHO, Fast Startup causes more issues than it's worth. Especially if you have an SSD. A lot of people just don't understand what it does. When turned on "Shutdown" isn't what you think it is. Anyway, now your fixed and that's all that matters.
    Agree. Shutdown should mean "SHUTDOWN".

    That's over my head, but as I know it, your PC goes into an S1 or S3 sleep state (forget witch) instead of a full shutdown. That's how it gets the fast startup. Actually selecting sleep or hibernate does something else, one step further I guess. One of the first things I do after a clean install is run powercfg -h off from the command prompt. This kills the hiberfill.sys file and disables sleep and hibernation. I run an SSD so fast startup doesn't gain me anything in start up time.

    Fast startup in BIOS and in the OS are different functions. If you want to turn it off in the OS, this will tell you how Fast Startup - Turn On or Off in Windows 10 - Windows 10 Forums. There's a you tube video showing how to do it Solved Windows 10 instructional videos by Ten Forums members - Page 26 - Windows 10 Forums

    missed the and BIOS part. Two different things entirely. Turning of Fast Boot in the BIOS will slow your boot time down. It does more hardware checks and shows more status info on the screen.

    The two basically are not related to each other. Fast startup in the bios bypasses the post information screen that shows all the hardware detected by the bios and shortens the delay allowed for the user to press the key to enter bios setup or select a boot device.

    Windows fast startup really keeps the computer from shutting down. It stores the current state in a combination of memory and a hibernation file and sets the flag for the bios not to go through the entire boot process at next startup.

    Wow that is terribly confusing. This whole time I've been working in the BIOS. I've mentioned my Gigabyte board has an ultra-fast startup and all (in the BIOS), and was thinking that might have had to do with a recent BIOS problem. Ah well, now I know the one everyone is talking about.

    Your not the first one to confuse Windows "Fast Startup" with the BIOS "Fast Boot". I've seen it many times.
