    BIOS power on function disabled since Win 10 upgrade

    I have the BIOS setting to auto power on every day at a designated time. It has worked with a dual boot Win 7/8.1 system. However, since upgrading the Win 8.1 to Win 10 (dual boot Win 7/10) it no longer powers on at the designated time. Its still set up correctly in the BIOS.

    This is apparently not the "fast boot" option that was in Win 8.1 as I can access the BIOS on power on (couldn't with the Win 8 fast boot).

    Probably a setting but not sure where to look.

    Is your system clock properly synced?

    Win 10/Win 7 and the BIOS clock all have the correct time. Nothing has changed in the BIOS. The only change is the Win 10 upgrade.

    I think I solved the problem. It was the fast boot, but unlike Windows 8/8.1 the fast boot in Win 10 allows accessing the BIOS at power on, where it didn't in Win 8/8.1.

    I've changed the parameter but will have to wait until the morning to see if it works. Thus I won't mark this as solved right now.
