How does "Fast startup" work?

  1. #11

    There are many Buzzards circling waiting to pounce. But to not denigrate Buzzards there are also many Raptors, hawks, eagles, constantly circling ready to pounce. Scan, invade, sully your computer scrounging for personal information, data, credit card numbers, ID's and the whole plethora. Malevolent users and relatively innocuous data miners, programmed to scan, night and day relentlessly, incessantly.

    Savvy computer users will have a device plugged in called an interrupter or surge protector. This is generically a long strip with several plug in outlets for the accommodation of USA current 110-120 Volt AC 60, cycle HZ, *( European may be different requiring an adapter ), a three prong with a ground. It has an on/ off switch and a light to signal when it is active and not active. Surge protectors can get very involved and beyond the scope of this post.

    Speaking for myself, when I log off and shut down using charms, after the computer screen is black I switch OFF the surge protector. This cuts off power and there is no-one on the planet that can access my computer until I switch it back on in the morning.

    Tried it in that order, but the uptime timer still doesn't reset back to 0 when I start the computer on with Fast start enabled (but it did reset when I started it up after disable hibernation/fast start up)
