    Windows 10 Laptop taking long time to shut down or restart


    Hi. I have an ASUS laptop with Windows 10. I make sure to keep with Windows updates. I run Trend Micro virus protection. I do disk cleanup regularly and have disk defrag set to go regularly. Laptop is less than one year old and has recently begun taking a very long time to shut down. In some instances, 10 minutes has gone by from the time I clicked shut down and it was still "shutting down." I've had to press down the power button, but I know that's not really the right way. Does anyone know what's going on? I've gone to Task Manager and nothing seems to be taking an extraordinary amount of space or memory. I've done scan disk. Any help would be appreciated.

    :)

    Laptop takes too long time to reboot to desktop on Windows 10

    Hi David,

    As per the description I understand that you are facing issues with booting the laptop to desktop as it is taking long time. Do not worry we will help you with this issue.

    • Do let us know the make and model of your laptop?
    • What is the current version Windows 10 installed on your laptop?

    This issue might have occurred due to incorrect settings to startup the device. Let us try the below troubleshooting steps and check if it helps.

    Step 1: I suggest you to check if
    Fast Startup
    option on your device is enabled.

    Fast startup is a new feature in Windows to help your PC start up faster after shutting down. When turned on, Windows does this by using a hybrid shutdown (a partial hibernate) method that saves only the kernel session and device drivers (system
    information) to hibernate (hiberfil.sys) file on disk instead of closing it when you shut down your PC.

    Steps:

    • Press Windows +
      X
      key and click Control Panel.
    • Click on Power options.
    • Click on Choose what the power buttons do.
    • Click on Change settings that are currently unavailable. If it prompts to click on yes, then click
      Yes.
    • Make sure Turn on fast startup (Recommended)
      option is Enabled/ check marked under shutdown settings.
    • If not, check mark it and click Save changes
      to configure the settings.

    Step 2: Run the Power Troubleshooter


    Power troubleshooter find and fix problems with your computer's power settings to conserve power and extent battery life


    • Type Troubleshooting in the
      Search bar on the desktop and press Enter.

    • In the Troubleshooting window, click on
      View All on the left pane.

    • Click on Power.

    • Click on Advanced and then click on
      Run as Administrator.

    • Click Next and follow the on-screen instructions to complete the troubleshooting process.

    Hope it helps you to boot the system faster. Let us know for further assistance, we will be happy to help you.

    Thank you.

    Windows 10 takes long time to shut down

    I don't see how this helps with the OP's problem: "but takes an unusually long time to shut down". Since I updated to windows 10 my PC, which used to shutdown really quickly on Windows 7, now
    takes up to a minute.
