  • My PC takes about 3mins to shutdown, used to take seconds...

    Hi,

    As the title reveals, my PC takes about 3mins to shutdown, it's maddening.

    I've done the registry thing whereby you change the variable from 5000 to 1000 to attempt to make your PC shutdown quicker - no joy. I've command prompted (as admin) and performed a scndsk - nothing found.

    PC specs: OS Version: Microsoft Windows 10 Home, 64 bit Processor: Intel(R) Core(TM) i5-3470 CPU @ 3.20GHz, Intel64 Family 6 Model 58 Stepping 9 Processor Count: 4 RAM: 16332 Mb Graphics Card: AMD Radeon (TM) RX 480, -1 Mb Hard Drives: C: 465 GB (75 GB Free); F: 465 GB (282 GB Free); Motherboard: MSI, Z77A-G41 (MS-7758) Antivirus: Avast Antivirus, Enabled and Updated

    I get the feeling it could be a program or app...or something that is having problems closing. How do I check for this?

    Any help much appriciated.

    Turn off quick start.

    Windows 10 uses a hybird hybernate/shutdown.

    With quick start enabled its writing your memory to disk.

    more info and how to turn off...

      Hi Wonderlust,

      Thanks for your reply.

      I am unable to see the option to turn-on fast startup?

      What am I missing?

      Cheers,

        it needs to be turned OFF...

        CMD
        type control
        click power option
        on the left click choose what the power buttons do.
        click change the settings that are currently unavailable
