Delayed start up time for laptop computer

HP Recommended
HP Pavilion 15-op066
Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)

Why does it take so long for my laptop to boot up?  Also, the computer won't shut down until I depress the start button.

I am really frustrated because it has happened since day one and no matter what I do it continues.  Would appreciate any hellp.

Thanky you

Win10 has enabled a new hibernation process known as Fast Startup -- which is different from Fast Boot. This is supposed to dramatically speed up the booting process, but in some PCs, it actually slows it down or causes it to hang. This could be what is happening to your PC.

Disabling Fast Startup might fix the booting problem.

There are two ways to disable FastStartup in Win10: (1) through the Control Panel, and (2) through an elevated command prompt.

Control Panel - Open Control Panel --> Power Options.
Select "Choose what the power buttons do"
Select "Change settings that are currently unavailable"
At the bottom of the Window, under Shutdown settings, uncheck the box regarding fast startup

Elevated command prompt - run the following command:
REG ADD "HKLM\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\Session Manager\Power" /V HiberbootEnabled /T REG_dWORD /D 0 /F

In both cases, reboot Windows.

NOW, FastStartup is disabled.
