    Critical error messages in event viewer after each shutdown

    I'm getting a trio of critical error messages in event viewer after each shutdown:

    - "The system has rebooted without cleanly shutting down first. This error could be caused if the system stopped responding, crashed, or lost power unexpectedly."

    - "Windows failed fast startup with error status 0xC00000D4."

    - "The previous system shutdown was unexpected."

    The PC starts up fine and seems to shut down very fast - within 10-12 seconds, and there seems to be no issues with startup or shutdown. But when I stumbled onto these critical messages in event viewer I got concerned. What could be triggering this? How do I troubleshoot this? They are logged in event viewer after each shutdown/reboot.

    Try turning Fast Start Up off in the Power Options Menu. Finding the option is a bit obscure. There are some known issues with this. It is on by default in Windows 10 and will trigger shut down errors.

    Thanks. I was unfamiliar with Fast Startup. I just disabled it and I'll see how it goes.
