  • 1.  Status of Fast Startup

    Posted Jun 12, 2023 03:08 PM

    Description: This query checks a registry key to see if Fast Startup is enabled or disabled on the computer.  

    What The Data Shows: With Windows 10 and 11, Fast startup can prevent a computer from truly shutting down if enabled since it goes into a hibernation mode.  When fast startup is disabled, a shutdown will be treated like a restart clearing all memory etc. allowing the computer to run more efficiently. 

    SQL: SELECT CASE cnt
    WHEN 0 THEN "DISABLED"
    ELSE "ENABLED"
    END "Fast Startup"
    FROM (SELECT count(name) AS cnt
    FROM registry
    WHERE PATH='HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\\SYSTEM\\CurrentControlSet\\Control\\Session Manager\\Power\\HiberbootEnabled' AND DATA = 1);
