    Shutdown/startup problem


    I have kind of a weird problem that went back to the Windows 8 days as well

    When I shutdown from my desktop, I have no problems when I start up again. (I'm the administrator if that makes a difference).

    When my wife shuts down from her desktop and I try to start up again, no signal gets sent to the display. I don't know if Windows just doesn't load up or if does, it's just not sending a signal. It doesn't seem to be asleep, because the normal things I do to wake it up (press spacebar or power button) don't work.

    Anyway, if I force the computer to shut down and start it up again, it works fine, and logs straightaway into my account (not hers). Again I don't know if it makes a difference, but I do have the computer automatically log me in on startup.

    Any ideas on what the problem is and how to solve it?

    Is your wife's computer actually shutting down or is it going into sleep or hibernate mode?

    You could also try disabling Fast startup on her computer, see if that helps: How to Turn On or Off Fast Startup in Windows 10

    Sorry, should be clearer. We both use the same computer. When she switches to her account and then shuts down, when I start the computer again, it won't automatically sign into my account or go to the sign-in screen. Instead, like I said, it does nothing, and because there's no signal going to the monitor, the monitor quickly shuts down.

    If on the other hand I shut down from my account, when I restart, Windows signs in to my account automatically as it should.
