My 1050G1 laptop, like many others on this forums, is sometimes extremely slow when waking from sleep. Sometimes a reboot would have been faster. How do I fix this? This has been ever since I got this computer. Before changing anything.
Please don't tell me to reset or reinstall the computer. I have seen that advice given to others with the same problem, without any success. It also makes no sense.
I NEVER tell folks to reset or reinstall their PC when it is SLOW -- because if that slowness is severe and happens all the time, it is a hardware issue, and a reset or reinstall will not only NOT fix that, it will make it worse!
Win10 has enabled a new hibernation process known as Fast Startup -- which is enabled BY DEFAULT. This is different from Fast Boot, which is a BIOS/UEFI option.
Fast Startup is supposed to dramatically speed up the booting process, but in some PCs, it actually slows it down or causes it to hang. It's also a new form of hibernation known as hybrid sleep -- and this causes battery drain to maintain the state of the PC while turned off.
Disabling Fast Startup might fix booting and shutdown problems.
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.
See if that helps.
