Windows 10: Windows 10 "Fast Start" prevents full shutdown

    Windows 10 "Fast Start" prevents full shutdown


    Has anyone had a problem with a computer that will not shut down completely after Windows 10 update? I have one and discovered that if I turn off the fast start option it will shut down all the way.

    Curious if anyone experienced this and if there is a solution other than disabling fast start.

    Thanks!

    Fast startup puts the PC in a hybrid sleep mode instead of a full shut down. That's how it speeds up the next startup. It also makes it tricky to access your BIOS on startup on some PC's. I run SSD's in all my PC's and just disable it. It's of no real advantage to me as far as boot up times go. As always YMMV.

    I have experienced difficulty entering BIOS on a couple of machines - now I know why. Thanks for the tip! I'll just leave fast start disabled on the computer that won't shut off fully.

    Thanks!

    If you press Shift + Restart then select Troubleshoot / Advanced Options you should see an option to change UEFI options. Select restart and you should boot to the BIOS screen.
