Windows 8 --- confusing ??? NAAAAAH :laugh:

 

Actually, not shutting completely down is part of the NSA spy plan --- the mic is always listening ...

It's awesome feature, also there isn't much reasons to shutdown or restart your pc every day, you can achieve pretty high uptime on windows 8 without any issues.

He said he has verizon internet  and is using the "AOL software"

 

Well that's his first problem... :p

 

On topic, I love the fast boot and haven't had a problem with it.  But then again, I rarely shutdown my laptop...mostly it just sleeps.  Haven't had any issues.

 

It's also not accurate to just lump everyone together and say consumers are confused.  A couple people are confused and you got their calls, but that's your job (I imagine).  You don't hear about all the people whom it's working just fine for.

If you turn off Fast Start-up from Power Options in the Control Panel that will disable Hybrid Shutdown.

I disabled fast startup/hybrid hibernation on Windows 8 because I didn't feel it was healthy for my pc. It is almost the same as a human staying awake endlessly and getting no sleep.

Because doing a fresh startup, you are freshly loading the drivers and everything rather than starting your PC back to a previous state.

Im not seeing where using Hibernation is unhealthy for a PC. Mine only get started once a month when updates requirement. Its been like that for years and Ive never had "health" issues relating to is.

I have SSD drive and don't notice the difference between hybrid shutdown or just shutdown. It might be there but I don't notice it. If I didn't have to install so much stuff for gaming and other usages then it probably would boot in 2 seconds but neither method for me boots that fast. Creative drivers alone adds all kinds of services and crap let alone the codecs and all the other crap I need.

Its all about the user. Every user is as different as the problems they usually create for themselves.
