    Hi vs6gy. Welcome to the TenForums @vs6gy

    Next time your system is up could your enter this command at a command prompt(admin)

    powercfg -h off

    This shuts off hibernation and Windows Fast StartUp.

    Then could you test and report back.

    If this fixes issues you can turn both back on by issuing command again only this time with the word On.

    You can then disable only Fast StartUp and retest.

    Could you also tell us which version and build of Win 10 you are using.

    Windows key + R, type winver, enter.
