Something that comes close to what you're asking: Enable hibernation in power management and instead of shutting down your PC, use the hibernate option. This does turn off your PC's power and restores your PC to the state you were in when you turned the system off. Other than that, there's no built-in functionality that does what you are asking.

Go to Task Manager Click on Process Tabs You need to verify your processes individually. End a process and Shutdown (See if it resolves) Note - Be clear you are aware of default process list. Verify ...

TL;WR: The problem was the size of the page file. By disabling clearing of the page file at shut-down, the time for shut-down went from over 5 minutes to just 9 seconds. If I kept this enabled, but decreased the size of the page file, I was able to reduce the shut-down time down to 41 s at 4583 MB. The first thing the led me to think that the problem ...
