How To Disable Fast Startup on Windows 10

Fast Startup is a Windows 10 feature designed to reduce the time it takes for the computer to boot up from being fully shut down. However, it prevents the computer from performing a regular shutdown and can cause compatibility issues with devices that do not support sleep mode or hibernation. If using a UAD-2 FireWire device it is recommended to disable this feature for better compatibility.

Symptoms

If Fast Startup is enabled, booting up from a full shutdown with your UAD-2 device connected to the computer and powered on may cause issues such as erroneous sleep mode error messages and disabled UAD plug-ins. 

Disabling Fast Startup

To disable Fast Startup, press the Windows Key + R to bring up the Run dialog, type powercfg.cpl and hit Enter. The Power Options window should appear. Click Choose what the power buttons do from the column on the left.
