Windows 10: Will updates ever install if you just shut down?

    Its the power button action then,
    Your computer never actually turns off.

    I don't shut it down on the button, I use power / shut down on the start menu. However, I just enabled unavailable power options and I see I have fast start active. But according to an article I read earlier, if I disable fast start I also disable hibernate, which I want to keep in case of a critical battery. Unless I'm wrong? It's not too bad though, I also found out I can just hold Shift and click shut down, and it performs a genuine shut down.
    I suppose if the hibernate disabling I read about isn't true then I could disable fast start, will it make much of a difference? Bearing in mind it's a new ultrabook, with an 8GB/1TB SSHD?

    Hibernate and fast startup are co-dependent. Like I twice said before, disabling 'Fast Startup' is the option you want to disable if you want to automatically install updates on shutdown with a single click. That was what you asked for in your original post. Hence why I made the suggestion.

    Nicely edited there! I was about to say I've only just discovered fast start was on, since reading the link. Seems a bit odd they've gone down this route, I always liked having a normal shutdown as standard! Whereas now if I want a proper shutdown I have to forego the low battery hibernation,!

    I do get the logic that MS used here. I also think it is flawed.

    I think it's flawed too, for the reason I first stated. The average Joe who just wants to use the computer for a while each day and shut it down, having no interaction with Windows update, could unbeknown to themselves be piling up the updates!

    So, slightly different angle then, do you think fast start is worth it, on newer machines especially? Mine has a hybrid drive with 8gb cache so it's pretty quick anyway?

    Every machine is unique. It all depends on your unique combination of installed hardware and software, your battery performance, the way you use your laptop. Loads of variables. All you can do is give it a go for maybe a week. See how the pros and cons weigh up. Then make an informed choice based on personal experience. After all, it's just a couple of clicks to disable and another couple to re-enable.

    Well i just disabled "fast start" because of freezing issues and no more computer freezes , thanks whoever suggested trying that . After rebooting numerous times with "fast start" disabled i see no difference , i really don't so i would say not worth it but everyones setup is different .

    My laptop is about 3 to 4 years old , Intel i5 and 6 gig's of ram .
