  1. Unable to hibernate or shutdown in Windows 10


    Hi,

    I am unable to shutdown or hibernate in Windows 10. Shutdown works only after disabling Fast Startup. I turned off hibernation and turned it back on using command line. Removed and added power plans. Removed and installed both AMD (CPU) and NVIDIA (GPU) display drivers.

    I am facing same issues as shown in below thread and followed all links and solutions listed there but none of them worked. Updates are working fine and I installed latest insider Beta channel build today. This problem is happening even before installing insider build.

    1- Unable to put it in Hibernate mode: whenever I select the option it just locks the screen, failing to shut down.

    2- Unable to shut down when fast startup is enabled: I had to disable the option to be able to shutdown my PC.

    Windows 10 won't shut down or hibernate

    Please let me know if anybody was able to solve this?

  2. Desktop Shutdown and Standby/Hibernate Icons

    I discovered some time ago a simple means of adding two desktop icons to cover Shutdown and Standby/Hibernate. I now use these icons all the time as it avoids using the Start procedure, which I never use at all unless I wish to Restart immediately after shutdown. Even then, I tend to use my desktop icons. Just close the browser, click the desktop icon and it is done.

    On your desktop, right click the free space, then click new shortcut, you get a Wizard, copy/paste the command for the location type from one of the below commands (in this case, %windir%\System32\rundll32.exe powrprof.dll,SetSuspendState ). Then click Next. You are asked to give it a title - Standby, Hibernate or Shutdown, I suggest using "Standby/Hibernate", click Finish.

    Shutdown: %windir%\System32\shutdown.exe -s
    Reboot: %windir%\System32\shutdown.exe -r
    Logoff: %windir%\System32\shutdown.exe -l
    Standby: %windir%\System32\rundll32.exe powrprof.dll,SetSuspendState
    Hibernate: %windir%\System32\rundll32.exe powrprof.dll,SetSuspendState Hibernate
    I have listed Hibernate for reference only, as the Hibernate desktop icon does not work for systems reasons, Hibernate can only be achieved by manually using the Power Options properties panel.

    Use CNTRL+C to copy and CNTRL+V to paste.

    Hibernate is automatic if the Hibernate box is checked in the Power Options properties panel. If the box is not checked, then Standby is automatic. You have to select this box to give you the option you want.

    Standby is more convenient if you are using the PC constantly, it is a quicker recovery, but has a power trickle. For long periods of absence, use Hibernate, it is much slower in recovering, but effectively shuts your computer down.

    The Power options panel is found by Control Panel>Power Options>Hibernate.

    The two desktop icons created can be changed by Right clicking the icon then Properties>Change icon>Browse>Windows 32>shell32dll>select icon>OK>Apply>OK
    You now have two brand new icons on your desktop for Shutdown and Standby/Hibernate. It works a treat.

    My icons are :-

  3. Unable to hibernate

    I was unable to shutdown or hibernate after the latest build. The computer would keep presenting the login screen. Upon suggestions I disabled "fast startup". This fixed the shutdown problem as my computer now successfully shuts down but when I try to hibernate
    one of two things happened. I am presented the login screen. Or sometimes the computer would shut down altogether.

    I am running build 1709. I am also part of Windows Insider Program and am running build 17063.

    I have tried most of the solutions mentioned on the forum including:

    • "sfc /scannow"
    • Disabling settings in inter power management device driver
    • Tweaking settings in advanced power options
    • Troubleshooting power options
    • Disable "Fast Startup"
