    No need to disable hibernation.

    You can do this instead.

    1 - Right click start menu and click power options.
    2 - From there select advanced power options.
    3 - From there click "choose what the power buttons do"
    4 - From there click "change settings that are currently unavailable"
    5 - Finally untick "turn on fast start up (reccomended)", and click save changes.

    Done :)

    Just a counterpoint to it being or not being the default, most users would not even know these options exist, and if the user would acquire a system with an HDD and the default was OFF, they could suffer performance issues and not be aware of why. We know the pros and cons of SSD/HDD, Fast Startup Off/On, the vast majority do not.

    That is why it shouldnt be the default.

    The benefit of it been on is a slightly faster bootup, the con is it can lead to broken unstable behaviour due to the OS not been properly reinitialized on boot.

    Microsoft went for the marketing benefits over tech support here.

    Looked like "fast start-up" caused Windows to report not being shut down properly! It apparently, was a cluster-F on my PC!

    Looked like it was "powercfg -h off" to the rescue on my end!

    The vast majority of what specific group of people are you referring to?

    I disagree. The fact that doing a restart is not the same as doing a shutdown before powering up again is just a poor excuse being made typically by those who fail to understand this other fact─for which Microsoft is not to blame. If your software shows you a message saying you need to restart, then usually, it means you need to restart.

    If such behaviour arises, the vast majority could be unaware of the cause and thus at a loss.
