    Windows taking very long to shutdown/restart, booting unaffected


    Hello, so the past couple of months or so I've had a problem with restarting and shutting down my laptop, I've tried many possible solutions but none seemed to help me, fast startup does help with the shutdown but restarts take just as long(it even says that in power options), i did not have it one before and it was fine, i think the issue started when I installed a program for university, it was one of the 4, maybe someone has a clue as to which might affect this (matlab, labview, quartus or coppeliasim), I am pretty stumped, might be a program is stopping me? any way to see that? as I've said boot time is unaffected hibernate on or off makes no diff, and no I've done no windows updates and have checked (to my knowledge) every powerplan option using quickcpu (for ease of use, and yes i was using it before it's not the cause), open to any suggestion pretty much...

    :)
     

  2. My pc takes for ever to shut down when i restart

    Suggest cleaning up your startup list .There may be many services / Apps you can remove on startup which is not needed on boot or during shutdown.
    Before you shutdown the Pc check what is running in Task Manager as a program or service in not killing the process on shutdown

    Would suggest cleaning up running apps and services -Autoruns, StartupMonitor,HighjackThis,
    Malware Scan - Malwarebytes,ADWcleaner, Combofix

    Time computer takes to boot up

    Hi,

    It is possible that it takes too long to boot up after the update because the Fast Startup is disabled. To efficiently assist you, we'd like to know what troubleshooting steps you've done so far.

    Meanwhile, we suggest that you follow these steps on how to enable Fast Startup. This helps start your computer faster after shutdown:

    • Open Control Panel and go to Power Options.
    • Click on the Choose what the power buttons do link on the left side.
    • Click on the Change settings that are currently unavailable link at the top.
    • If prompted by UAC, then click on Yes.
    • Ensure that Turn on Fast Startup is checked.
    • Restart the computer.

    Let us know if you need further assistance.
