    Thanks, Bree. I applied your suggestion and easily reduced the size of the hiberfile, using CMD prompt.

    Well, the startup time is now intolerably long. I get past the first screen OK, But when the 2nd screen appears it takes about 5 minutes for the log-in box to appear. I tried applying Bree's suggestion, using CMD prompt (Admin) but apparently it didn't help. I'll try it again and re-post here if there's any difference.

    Here is the command I used: powercfg /h /type full. I used a space between powercfg and the 1st fwd slash. Also. a space between h and the next fwd slash. Hope that was correct.

    On Edit: I did a little further reading in the tutorial Bree supplied and think I made an error. I noticed the command should have been: powercfg /h /size 0

    Lesson learned: read entire tutorial before proceeding!

    I haven't restarted the computer yet, but next time should hopefully be shorter startup.

    Well, a new situation just popped up. I notice that the "hibernate" check box has disappeared. I tried running the command (admin): Powercfg /hibernate on, but the "hibernate" check box didn't appear. Lots of strange things happening! I almost wish I could have stuck with the original W10 anniversary OS. The new update is causing more situations than I'm used to.

    If you used the POWERCFG command to set too small a size, or set the hiberfil.sys size to 'Reduced', then only fast start up is supported. You need a full sized hibefil.sys to support hibernation as well.

    Have you checked the Event Viewer (Custom Views / Administrative Events) to see what errors/warnings your getting. It could help diagnosis your slow startup/shutdown times.

    Probably a good idea to clear the event viewer, then do a restart.

    Thanks for the explanation. I was under the impression that the "hibernate" box needed to be checked for fast startup to work.

    I'm working on it, Eagle. I've cleared the event viewer as suggested and waiting for next time I start up my PC after shutdown. I'm fairly new using event viewer, but I'll let you know what transpires. Thanks.
    Well startup is now significantly faster. Whatever I did, following instructions from you guys, seems to have worked. We'll see if it remains that way. Thanks a million to all involved!
