May or may not apply, but Windows 8/8.1/10 handles restarts and "shutdown/turn ons" differently than previous versions of Windows.
Windows 8/8.1/10 has a quick start feature that uses a hybrid hibernation file. This file can corrupt over time causing a myriad of issues. A shutdown does not delete and rebuild that file.
That is why a restart takes longer, it's not using the previous "quick start" file, instead it is creating a new one.



This boils down to two simple issues easily remedied in Win10--hibernation (which I always turn off by admin command prompt: powercfg -h off) and "fast startup" under Win10 Power Options, which I also turn off (Win10: Power Options/Choose What the Power button does/Change settings that are currently unavailable.

Both of these options are designed for laptops and sleep mode, etc.--neither of which I use on my gaming desktops as there is little to no value in using them with that hardware. Actually, simply turning hibernation off will automatically disable fast startup, which is 100% dependent on hibernation being ON. But if you want to see the option, then leave/turn hibernation on (powercfg -h on) and go here: Power Options/Choose What the Power button does/Change settings that are currently unavailable--and you will see the "fast startup option." and the hibernation option. You can disable it there or do it from an Admin command Prompt as I've illustrated.

I don't recommend hibernation ON for anyone with a desktop--especially a gaming desktop. Fortunately, it is very easy to turn all of that off in about two seconds with the Admin Command Prompt powercfg -h off ...;) The command is permanent, and will leave hibernation turned off through subsequent reboots until you elect to turn it back on for some reason. I never have..;)
It is well known universally that I do not make mistakes--so, if you should happen across an error in that which I have written, please be assured that *I* did not write it!...:)
