    I'm wondering if this would make a real difference on systems with HDDs, but not much of a difference with newer systems with SSDs as the primary boot drive.

    It does indeed make a noticeable difference for both HDD (more so) and SSD by not having to go through the normal full boot routine.

    If you have an SSD, in any case I have found the WinX shutdown faster than the the one for fast-startup(from start menu when turned on).
    I occasionally use WinX for a full shutdown, so that any PendingFileRenameOperation's can get done, and I'm not quite sure yet if there is much of a difference in boot times.

    Shawn on my system, after BIOS, my desktop just pops up with fast startup both on & off. But it could just be because the WinX shutdown or a restart is seldom done.

    Thanks for that-used Option 2 to reinstall Fast Startup which was much easier and quicker than I ever expected,me being a bit of a novice. Great to have a site like this too.

    I don't know if anyone noticed this, but with Fast Start enabled, my battery life would drain quite a bit. My laptop sat powered off for about 24 hours and went from a full charge to 67%.

    I read somewhere that with faststart the computer does not shut off completely ,instead goes in some kind of hibernation.
