    Question

  • this is normal shutdown process used in windows developer preview which is called hybrid boot and this does not closes the system completely..

    i like hybrid boot very much.... but i need a technique to shutdown the operating system completely without using restart


    What does the  /FULL  parameter do then?

  • Take a look at the following BLOG post.  I normally use Option #2, shutting it down from the Power icon in the Settings menu.

  • You can disable Hybrid boot from the Power Options settings in Control Panel.  Disabling it will prevent the system from saving the temporary settings that make startup faster.
