    Turn off Fast Start in the power settings. For me it's more trouble than worth. If it is a ghost tell it that it owes you for the electric bill. 🙂

    Jesse,

    Option 1 would need to be done right after the computer wakes up for it to show the correct last wake. Otherwise, you'll have to look in Event Viewer for the date and time you wanted.

    @Winuser, it didn't do it last night after you told me to turn off Fast Startup. However, when I turned it on this morning it beeped at startup. It normally beeps after a restart (which happens when an update has been installed or when new software prompts a restart). This is leading me to think that it didn't shut down right.

    It did shut down correctly. This time with Windows 10 fast startup turned off it actually shut down all the way. The beep is probably signaling the handoff between when the BIOS/UEFI is available to be entered with a keystroke to the loading of the bootloader. With Windows 10 fast startup enabled, that part of the initial BIOS/UEFI loading sequence is bypassed.

    An OS restart, initiated either by a windows update or by the using clicking restart also bypasses Windows fast startup if it is enabled and restarts the computer from zero state again, including fully loading the BIOS/UEFI with all checks and waits for user input, that's why you get the same beep on restart.

    Okay. Thanks for the information.

    I don't use Fast Start so I may be*wrong. My thinking is that with Fast Start enabled the computer*restarted because either Windows or one of your programs was checking for a update.

    Edit: Sorry for the asterisks. I wanted test*Edge again. Guess I'll go back to pale Moon.
