    Good day Brink,

    Shutdown Settings > Fast Startup checked + Hibernate checked
    1) WinX > Shutdown = 0x0
    2) Charms > Start > Power Options > Shut down = 0x1
    3) Start Menu > Shut Down = 0x1

    Shutdown Settings > Fast Startup checked + Hibernate not checked
    1) WinX > Shutdown = 0x0
    2) Charms > Start > Power Options > Shut down = 0x0
    3) Start Menu > Shut Down = 0x0

    Respectfully submitted

    Thank you bjm. It looks like Win+X shutdown is still always a full shut down.

    I'm surprised that having hibernate check or unchecked would have any bearing on fast startup. It was presented to only either have Hibernate show (checked) or hide (unchecked) in the Power menu. Is this the settings you are referring to?

    Yes, Image at number 3 at above link. I was curious regarding Hibernate > "Show in Power menu".
    Perhaps Fast Startup is dependent on Hibernate while Hibernate is not dependent on Fast Startup.
    W8.1 Power Management is not their finest work.
    I've had Fast Startup and Hibernate unchecked from day one.
    I became curious by reading about W10.
    Yes, Win+X shutdown is still always a full shut down.
    As always YMMV
    Thanks

    Hello PiaLam,

    It looks like you may have used the method in the tutorial below to force fast startup to always be on. You can use step 3 in OPTION TWO below to undo this, and should be able to check/uncheck fast startup afterwards.
