    I have all that junk turned off, BOOT in 17 seconds and this SSD is not a speed demon either.

    Fast startup on here, Windows 10 Home 64bit, On 24/7, with downloads, updates, on it again as soon as I wake up, Spinner hard drive, no SSD yet, might make changes when get SSD, but don't know, I've been sleeping my Systems for years, as like the speed it wakes up, so I can resume my acitvities.

    Slept my old System
    Newer System
    and might continue once I get my very first SSD, or maybe make changes, not sure yet

    With fast boot enabled (my default setting) I could be here, typing away, in under 15 seconds from pressing the power button. That's on an SSD. W8.1 on the same PC and with a conventional (but 7200rpm) drive was just about as quick as I recall.

    I know a lot worry over excess write cycles to SSD yet the manufacturers put their reliability over that of traditional drives. If it fails it fails, and then I'd probably be the first to whinge (lol) based on the fact I've never had a drive fail on me (yet). So fingers crossed.

    Hey, if it works for you, use it. Just don't be surprised by opposing views.

    I'll have to test on one of my systems, but I'd be surprised if the setting changes anything, other than draining the battery of a laptop.

    There's no battery drain with fast boot enabled. The required file is written to the HDD/SSD ready for immediate loading on power up.

    Unless you suffer with one of the systems who, in conjunction with certain Intel Management Engine drivers, doesn't fully shut down. I have a Pavilion x360, and it needs specific IME drivers and Fast Startup disabled, or else my battery will drain overnight when it is "off".

    Interesting. Mines an Intel i5 based system (Dell Vostro) but I couldn't tell you the specifics.

    I use all Dell at work and haven't come across the issue. My wife and I each have i5 Intel chipset based Pavilion x360s and they both suffer from the issue, as do many other HPs. It's frustrating, until it is resolved. Makes me think our next laptops will be Dells.
