  1. Windows Boot/Shutdown randomly taking a long time.


    Hi. I installed Windows 10 Pro on my new computer (self-built) the other week. It's been running very nicely, very very quick. Well, it all seemed to be working OK at least, until a few days ago it randomly started to hang when I was shutting the computer down. And it's done it a few times since. I'd choose shutdown, everything would at first seem to shut down, the monitor would lose signal and auto shut off like normal, but the keyboard backlights stayed on and the computer was still running. There was drive activity during this and eventually, after about a minute, the computer would finally turn off.

    Not content with failing to shut down properly though it also seems to randomly startup slowly. It will POST OK as far as I can tell, then starts loading Windows and then it stays black with the mouse cursor visible (and moveable) for upwards of 30 seconds before the login screen shows up.

    The odd thing about all this is that it doesn't always do it. Sometimes it shuts down nice and quick (ie when the screen loses signal the computer actually turns off a second or two later). And startup is usually quick too, from time to turn on to when I get the login screen is less than 10 seconds usually (I have an SSD).

    I'd normally attribute this to a driver issue but, like I say it was working fine before the other day (well, I think it was) and as far as I'm aware it hasn't had any new Windows or driver updates come through since I initially updated it all after installing the OS.

    Any ideas?

    :)

  2. Microsoft must review the Fast shutdows (hybrid shutdown) in Windows 10 Takes too much time shutdown

    I heve been watching forums with people who are having problems with Windows 10 fast boot/shutdown ( hybrid shutdown) and I include myself, as a reported behavior seems to be constant, the devices... laptops, desktop PCs remain in a state of shutdown,
    they are hanging on the shutdown process and takes way too much time to shutdown.

    In my case, my desktop PC with Windows 10 Home 64bits and enable fast boot/shutdown (hybrid shutdown) are little faster booting up, but when you shutdown the PC its turn off the screen fast but then stays on a long time with the lights on and fans running.
    the actually shuting down takes really long time.

    But when I disable boot/shutdown fast (hybrid shutdown) PC turns off completely fast

    Hi,



    Thank you for posting your query in Microsoft Community.

    I apologize for the inconvenience caused. We are glad to help you.



    Boot the computer in Safe Mode:

    Safe mode is a diagnostic mode that starts your computer with limited drivers necessary to run Windows. The word
    Safe Mode appear in the corners of your monitor to identify which Windows mode you are using.

    Refer to the article mentioned below to boot the computer in safe mode.

    Start your PC in safe mode in Windows 10

    http://windows.microsoft.com/en-in/windows-10/start-your-pc-in-safe-mode



    If your computer works fine in safe mode, perform clean boot

    Putting your system in Clean Boot state helps in identifying if any third party applications or startup items are causing the issue.

  4. Windows Boot/Shutdown randomly taking a long time.

    Hello mrpantsinator,

    Check Device Manager for issues. Also, check Hidden Devices there.

    Disconnect any Peripheral Devices. Then test behavior.

    Run SFC.

    Run System Restore.

    Run Clean Boot. If this helps, run Diagnostic Startup. Load a few startups or services at a time until the boot and shutdown issue returns.

    Check Event Viewer for errors.

    Check Task Manager.

    Hope this helps,
    John
