Windows 10 Shutdown Puts it to Sleep rather than shutdown

Recently had an issue where Group Policies were not applying to a machine.

Gpresult /r showed the group policy 

On checking the machine, the Up Time was over 30 days. The user said she had shutdown the computer. Turns out Windows 10 has a default option called “fast startup” which Sleeps the computer on shutdown!

To disable this Disable the GPO

Computer Configuration\Policies\Administrative Templates\System\Shutdown\Require use of fast startup does set the following registry key HKLM\SOFTWARE\Policies\Microsoft\Windows\System\HiberbootEnabled=0 (REG_DWORD)

Set the Registry key

HKLM\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\SessionManager\Powerfix\HiberbootEnabled=0
