    I left it on even on SSD, I like the fast boot but when I insert my other SSD which have Linux installed on it I turn it off.

    Doesn`t skip it on my board, I mean my boot is fast but it doesn`t skip the post.

    But I do disable the splash screen and set the timer to 1 second.

    Interesting, I guess different manufactures use that setting for different things.

    The POST isn't skipped, you just get a truncated version of it. If you turn the BIOS Fast Boot option off, you see more status messages on screen. Status messages as it enumerates hardware etc. Turn it on and the extra info isn't displayed and you boot up quicker. I can still access my BIOS and BIOS quick boot menu with it on so I leave it on.

    Fast Boot is no longer needed, and was short sighted

    I personally enjoy it, makes a pc load fast, what am i missing > i see on many answers around the board disable fast boot
    Okay, probably like most people today in 2017, I'm using an SSD, I'm on my 3rd or 4th SSD drive at this point even my mom has an SSD in her computer now. What is the point of Fast Boot? I notice with it on me (and other people) get phantom touches on the screeen and perhaps other problems, but with it off, there is no noticable change in boot time.. Yes, on an SSD with fast boot off from power off the computer still boots up in maybe 2 seconds. What kind of short sighted person foreseeing an ancient world run off rotary hard drives would try to speed up booting off those drives when we no longer really use them anymore. With modern drives, we don't need fast boot, it just causes problems.

    For an ssd, there is limited benefit.

    You are being extremely harsh about HDD users.

    I bet well over 80% of pcs in existence still boot off hdds. It is only in the affluent countries that people can afford SSDs.

    BTW: This forum does not really appreciate such harshness - as this is your first post, we can be more forgiving, but please bear in mind for future posts.

    The writing of the hiperfile.sys file every time you shut down can be a determent to an SSD. IMHO anyway. Still many many people with spinner dives out there though. I still have one desktop PC with one for its only drive. I still don't use Windows Fast Startup though. I'll take a reliable boot up over crossing my fingers and hoping it boots up Ok anyday.

    My 2cents: Yep, I'm one of those 80%'er's that still use a HDD. That said, mine is left on from default install and has never given me any issues. Although I may just turn it off and see what happens. Could be an interesting experiment.

    I appreciate your ability to be forgiving, but please understand i haven't worked in 15+ years and am basically on welfare and buy my SSDs with my welfare check money (SSDI, not related to SSD). I suppose i am just out of touch with the fact that outside of my world people are still using older technologies.

    By the way, I am probably high functioning autism, diagnosed once in 2010 and not treated, and i took a test online yesterday which matched, so that may affect the way i behave. I ask that you factor in disabilities when you consider how you treat your users, don't discriminate based on them.
