Very slow POST before startup

EliteBook 830 G5
Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)

When switched on for cold boot or when waking up from standby, the laptop takes maybe 10 seconds in POST, I mean it just sits there before even showing anything on the screen. I think this is not normal, especially for wake up.

It is a top spec laptop, 8th gen i7, SSD, 32GB or RAM. You would expect at least a fast boot from it.

I have checked the BIOS, Wait is set to 0 seconds.

Perhaps it is doing something else, some security thing or scanning the memory perhaps, but I am not sure.

Is there a way to show POST messages to see what is it that it is doing so long?
