Hybrid Boot: Force “Fast Startup” to Always be Turned On In Windows 8!

Computerconfiguration 9N ThumbMaking use of Hybrid Boot is useful – we explain how this works in Microsoft’s new Windows 8

Fast Start Up is also known as Hybrid Boot or Hybrid Shut Down. This helps you to start up your computer faster after shutdown. When you start your PC again, Windows 8 uses the saved system information to resume your system and does not require a boot to restart again. This technique has a remarkable advantage. This is because reading the hiberfile and reinitializing the drivers is comparatively faster. To achieve this “force start” the user must be logged in as administrator. The following tutorial will help you.
