The Ultimate Guide to Optimize your Windows PC for the Stage



Another power option you may want to consider turning off is Fast Startup. This feature is designed to reduce the time it takes for the PC to boot up. If you enable the Fast Startup feature and shut down your PC it looks like it is completely shut down; however, your PC has entered a state between hibernation and shutdown. Your PC does not really shutdown completely and consequently audio glitches and distortions may occur when you turn it back on.


These problems are due to compatibility issues with audio devices that do not support sleep mode or hibernation. Examples are some UAD devices, where we strongly recommend that you disable the Fast Startup feature.


As shown above, click on the Start button and type: choose a power plan to open your Power Options:


Click on the Choose what the power button does option:


Click on Change settings that are currently unavailable (1) and then uncheck Turn on fast startup (2).
