    You said "hyberfil.sys taking the size of exact 75% of ram. then why not its works as fast startup as it should be?"

    My response: "Fast boot does not require all that hiberfil.sys HD space to work so, suspecting that your fast boot issue might be related to your shortage of HD space, I suggested that you could change the size of hiberfil.sys to 50% of your RAM. Now, what that would do is still allow fast boot to function properly (if working properly) and also return 4GBs of HD space for general use. So, instead of having only 2GBs useable, you would now have 6GBs useable and maybe that might a step towards fixing your fast boot issue."
