Windows is not shutting down completely or Restarting by itself when connected to power adapter or Docking station |Windows 10|

Welcome to my other post where I am going to tell you about another interesting fix where we are going to fix one more Windows 10 issue in which Laptops just restarts by itself when you choose to Shutdown the computer and it auto restarts by itself especially when Laptop is connected to Power sources like Docking Station or AC Adapter.

No matter how many times you try to shut the computer down using the power button, using Start menu shutdown options, shutdown command or creating a shortcut but it will always restart.

But seems like power source is somehow triggering it to restart, initially, I had a thought that it could be an issue with the HW of the computer because it was shutting down all the ways and then restarting from outside of the OS. But later identified issue started to occur after 1803 update on the Windows 10 PC and when tried rolling it back to a 1709 update of Windows 10 this issue disappear hence to regenerate and confirm that issue is with Windows alone reinstalled the Windows 10 1803 upgrade now the issue came back.

Did research and found this issue mainly on i7 processor working on Windows 10 1803 version and found a fix as well.


Open Run Box (Win logo Key + R) Then type powercfg.cpl to access the power options page as in below image:
Open Run Box (Win log Key + R) Then type powercfg.cpl to access the power options page as in below image:

Then click on "Choose what the power buttons do", as highlighted in yellow in the above image.

Then uncheck the box "Turn on fast startup(recommended)", as highlighted in green in below image:

If you are successfully able to save this option then try shutting down the computer and see how does it work. If you are successfully able to Shutdown the computer then your issue is resolved or else you can try below command to remove this setting completely:


Run this command with Admin rights to make it work.

Issue Status: resolved.

Problem Detail:

This one's relatively rare, but it's a big enough problem that it's shown up on several different support forums: When you install the Creators Update it might automatically enable Windows' Fast Startup option, which puts your PC into a low-level hibernation state when you shut it down.
Fast Startup can create more problems when booting up, like getting stuck at the BIOS and having to pull the power plug to get the PC up and running again. It can also make it difficult to access the BIOS if you need to change boot settings or check on an overclock mode(S3,S4,S...n, hyperthreading and turbo boost)in BIOS. Luckily, there's an easy fix. You just need to disable hibernation with our good old friend, the command prompt "CMD".
If you are still facing Windows 10 Auto restart issue, and it does not matter whether the AC adapter/Docking station is connected or not, then Click here for a fix.

Disable Lock Screen | Microsoft Windows 10

"Disable Windows lock Screen" prompt while logging in ?

Recently identify very irritating behavior while logging back into Windows after locking the screen, specially using facial recognition feature of Window's Hello, that after cam identify it's you then to Windows ask you to disable lock screen. On top of that Microsoft disabled Group Policy editor to be edited after Microsoft Windows 10 Anniversary update (aka Redstone).

Best way to keep it working is by keeping it on and make use of it, you can just bypass it by pressing any key on keyboard or touching touch screen once hello recognizes you.

But if you really want to get rid of this Window's feature and want to login without touching any thing then I somehow identified resolution to this issue, thanks to some of my fellow bloggers and nerds.

You have to open system folder of Microsoft Windows for that go to This PC go to C: then to Windows in there look for System folder. Under System folder look for Microsoft_LockApp following alfanumeric codes, for example:

"Microsoft.LockApp_cw5n1h2txyewy".  You just need to "Microsoft.LockApp_cw5n1h2txyewy.old" rename it to and it will disable Windows lock screen.

It will be little insecure to keep it this way because when ever Windows hello recognize you it will enable the login without any keyboard input.
