    Schedule shutdown is actually a full shutdown.


    Hi to all Eightforums.
    came here after a long time, and very hardly remind my id/pasword. thank God I remind it.
    so the problem is, I often let my laptop for downloading something in torrent or idm and set the option "shutdown after download". and I noticed that this schedule shutdown is a full shutdown. not hiber shutdown as windows 8 doing it by default. its confirmed by starting the laptop again and it takes much time at startup. wheres my laptop's normal start time is very short, no more then 20 seconds or less.
    so is there any option I should set and this schedule shutdown make hiber (fast) shutdown.
    waiting for reply.
    best regards.
    (sorry for language)
