Reboot issue with the Fast Startup setting in Laptop for Windows 10

gtsanggtsang Member Posts: 7


I have a monitor filter driver, my altitude was allocated in the group FSFilter Activity Monitor, as long as my driver was installed, it will attach all the volumes, but it won't monitor the I/O yet, when I click the Windows "Power" --> Shutdown, computer is going to shutdown, the screen will go black, but it will come back with the login screen again in a few seconds, the computer can't shutdown.

I tested with a few number in group FSFilter Activity Monitor, it has the same behavior, but if I changed it to other group, for example group FSFilter Encryption, the computer can shutdown.

Anyone knows what causing this issue?

    Doesn't make sense...Do you get the same problem with the Minispy sample?

    Ok, my assumption is not correct, after change the altitude and reload the driver, then reboot, it works, but after login and reboot again, it still failed. So it doesn't matter with the altitude.

    After I did several tests, I found that if I don't attached the volume with dos name format like "\?\Volume{b5467f99-29b6-11e9-9a72-806e6f6e6963}", then the computer can reboot normally.

    so someone can explain why?

    No, sorry, you need to debug it.
