If you have ever shutdown an unmodified version of Windows 10 then you’ve been there >> PC still powered on and your display is at a black screen. Then a bit later the PC powers off. From my point, I’d prefer the monitor to stay active until the PC powers off. Shutting down the monitor early is a bit annoying and leads me to believe the PC is off when it’s not.
I’ve created this blog post so I won’t forget how to disable this functionality as I’m sure in time I will forget.
Changing the setting is quite easy:
- In the Control Panel go to Power Options and click on ‘Choose what the power button does’
- From there choose ‘Change Settings that are currently unavailable’
- You should notice the options below are no longer grayed out.
- Remove the checkmark by ‘Turn on fast startup’
After changing these settings my PC shutdown normally, the display stated active, and then the PC powered off. For good measure, I power on my PC I didn’t notice any change in the amount of time for it to startup.
If you like my ‘no-nonsense’ blog articles that get straight to the point… then post a comment or let me know… Else, I’ll start writing boring blog content.
