    No option to disable Fast Startup


    All of the guides I have seen say that to disable Fast Startup you should:
    - Settings | System | Power & Sleep
    - Additional Power Settings
    - Choose what the power buttons do

    Then under "Shut down settings" there should be a tick box - but I dont have it.

    Can you see why it might not be showing for me?

    Have you disabled hibernation?

    My guess is your hardware doesn't support hybrid sleep/fast startup. It's already disabled.

    I didnt think my hardware was that old - is it common for motherboards not to support hibernate?

    I cant see an option in the BIOS. I have disabled fast boot in the BIOS, but that doesnt seem to have changed anything.

    I turned off Fast Boot in the BIOS but this doesnt seem to have made much difference.

    It also looks like he has Hibernation off. Both the power button screen and power plan options do not show any hibernation options. Like the cmd "powercfg -h off" was run. If he wants hibernation but not fast startup, run cmd "powercfg -h on" then follow instructions above. Hibernation off is best choice, plus he gets back 6-7GB space.

    Can't tell from the specs, but if he has a SSD, definitely Hibernation/Fast startup OFF!

    If he runs powercfg -a from a prompt is should tell him what's going on with both hibernation and fast startup.

    If he clicks the 'Change Settings that are currently unavailable' he will have Hibernation and Fast Startup options.
