I'd love some help with this peculiar machine of mine please! Dell XPS running on Windows 10...and here it was happens:
I wanted to enable fast start up because it seemed to be taking an age to start up, however it wasn't available on the power options menu. The box to tick simply wasn't there.
A little bit of digging around and I was drawn to a page telling me that in order to get it to show up I needed to type in:
powercfg.exe /hibernate on
Which I did! Great! The option shows up! Now the computer boots much faster...but.....
for some reason when I hit the sleep button on my keyboard or just let the computer go to sleep by itself after 15 minutes...it shuts down. Well, the machines off, but I dont get the "shutting down" spinning wheel like I normally do, plus when I reboot it shows me Firefox and "these pages did not close down correctly"
Any help is much appreciated - it certainly boots a bit faster but when it goes to sleep, it REALLY goes to sleep, and I cannot wake it up, I have to re-start the bleeping computer!
