How to instruct Windows 8 NOT to perform a fast shutdown?
Windows 8 has a hybrid shutdown that has some (perhaps minor) downsides.
Hybrid shutdown is faster, so I do not want to turn it off permanently.
However, when I am sure that I am about to leave the stationary computer for a considerable amount of time, I would like to shut it down in a way that has no downsides at all (except for being slow, which is unimportant in that circumstance). (I suppose this could also install any pending windows updates.)
To clarify, I want to do the equivalent of a full restart (which would refresh the hyberfile), then a hybrid shutdown (which would save the new hyberfile, so that the next startup is fast)
I can think of two potential solutions:
- Temporarily switching to non-"fast startup" (and then automatically turning "fast startup" on again after startup)
- Do a proper reboot which is then immediately (and without user interaction) followed by a shutdown
Is there any way to automate either of those to make them really simple to do (perhaps by running a script)?
