The option to enable fast startup is not visible.

Hey there,
I know this is an easy issue, and all we have to do is open CMD and run "powercfg /hibernate on" and everything will be fine. However, after installing the 21H1 update on my Dell laptop, the Hibernate option is now available, but "Turn on fast startup" is not. I tried everything, but it didn't work out. I tried everything, but it didn't work out. Everywhere I look, all I see is this CMD answer. I'm in desperate need of assistance with this problem.

Thank you very much in advance!

I checked in my 21H1 Windows, and it's still present in the Power options > Choose what the power buttons do > Change settings that are currently unavailable in Control Panel.

Anyway, there is no need to be desperate. It's a rather unnecessary function, especially if the laptop (as laptops nowadays do) boots from an SSD in stead of a HDD. Did you ever measure the difference between normal startup and fast startup? How many seconds was it?

And a tip to save you time (more time than fast startup gives you):
If you need to repeatedly give the same command in CMD (like you describe above) put it in a batch file stored in your Startup folder (than it's run automatically after booting) or on your desktop (then it's just one click to run it).
