Windows 10: Turn On or Off Fast Startup in Windows 10
The process you show seems to have something to do with your CPU, unless your username is the same as your CPU. Check that the CPU is properly cooled and the fan is running. Did you use the cooling paste properly?
Yes, my computer name is named by the CPU that's inside. And no it has absolutely nothing to do with that whatsoever. My CPU is cooled by a Noctua NH-D15 and is properly installed. This is a driver issue of some kind that doesn't like the hibernated state of fast startup. I just need a way to find out which driver is causing the issue.
You might see if troubleshooting with a clean boot may be able to ID a culprit.
Troubleshoot Problem with Clean Boot in Windows 8
First of all thanks for all these tutorials they've helped me a lot.
I have a question I strugle finding an answer to. Given that the hiberfile is written to the hard drive, I thought it would mean that the computer doesn't need to consume any energy at all between a shutdown and a fast startup. But the comments in this thread seem to point to the contrary.
So my question is, does the pc still consume energy after shutting down with fast startup enabled? Does that apply to desktop pcs? What happens if I shut down a desktop pc with fast startup enabled and then disconnect it from the power source?
Also, I would like to know the answer to those same questions but in regard to UEFI fast boot.
Thanks in advance.
Hello Cocay, and welcome to Ten Forums.
Fast Startup is a hybrid boot with an effectively zero watt power draw when off. When turned on, the computer doesn't perform a full shutdown.

Hello Brink, thank you for your welcome and your help =)
I'm still confused. The first article you linked to seems to indicate that a computer shut down with fast startup enabled consumes no energy at all: they talk about resuming from a full power loss, or having "Effectively zero watt power draw when off", and show a video of a laptop whit its battery removed booting with fast startup.
Yet, what you describe is a "very low power state", which is not the same.
So what happens really? Is it a zero watt consumption state, as the article seems to say, or is it a low power state, as you say?
Yep, effectively zero watt power draw.
Thanks for making this clearer.
So, just to be sure, if I:
-Enable Fast Startup
-Shut down my desktop computer
-Disconnect my computer from the power source, so it receives no energy at all
-Reconnect it to the power source hours later
Will I still benefit from Fast Startup when turning my computer on?
Perfect! Many thanks, have a nice day =)
