http://forums.anandtech.com – It seems that on Windows 8.1 (& maybe 8) if you have any devices disabled in device manager Fast Boot/Hibernation gets confused and sees them as a new device. You can't even disable a Bluetooth adapter in Network settings or set a disk to Offline in Disk Management. :mad: When this happens it drops the saved state; for Fast Boot that will be the saved Windows Session and for Hibernate that will discard the full contents of memory in the hiberfile and power off. --- I'm not exactly sure what Microsoft was thinking while implementing this but it caused me a lot of headaches over the past (Hardware)
