fast boot in BIOS keeps turning itself back on (plus other strange things)

Weird problems here - help much appreciated!
  1. when shutting down win10, it comes back on (like me clicking restart but I did not)
  2. one of the last win10 updates must have re-enabled fast boot in BIOS (which I had always off). I can turn it off but it comes back after a few boots ...
  3. even weirder: 3 times now system time was off by a day or more ... DAW is offline, date/time set to be retrieved from the www (so I saw it drift by a few minutes if offline for several months but never this much)
Apart from that no issues after having booted into win10 while working with the DAW, but worried something in the background is not right or on its way out ...
 
Thanks in advance to everybody out there still coming to this forum

    Windows 10 "fast boot" is not a BIOS function.  Its found in Settings/System/Power and Sleep/Additional Power Settings/Choose what the power buttons do.  Click "Change Settings that are currently unavailable" and then uncheck "Turn on fast startup" and then click Save Changes.

    thanks. i had seen that and done that. all of it actually, including the registry setting. but when i enter bios settings at boot it keeps saying fast boot enabled (for whatever that means with hibernation turned off and the registry fix) ... then i set it to disabled ... but eventually it returns ...

    I went through the ASUS manual, BIOS section, and don't see anything about "fast boot".???
     
    The BIOS is similar to my ASUS BIOS and there is no "fast boot" option in it, too.

    My Asus UEFI/BIOS boot page has a 'Fast Boot' has a 'Enabled' / 'Disabled' option.  'Enabled' says to select to accelerate the boot speed.
     
    I think the Windows version is using a hybrid sleep mode that involves the hibernation file.

    Found this on an ASUS forum
     
    "Basically Fast Boot under a UEFI setup initializes all hardware at the same time(providing you have compatible VGA and Mobo) to boot you into Windows faster. As opposed to the older BIOSes which initializes your hardware one piece at a time and takes longer by doing so".

    I've had similar issues with the BIOS in the past when I've had power brown-outs.
     
    The symptoms you describe point to a corrupted BIOS. ASUS is pretty tollerant with corruption, which is why it appears to work, but you get weird stuff happening.
     
    The easiest way to fix this is to check which version of the BIOS you have, download that version from ASUS's website and reflash the BIOS.

    the only way I could turn off fast boot/hybernate on my Win10 Pro box was via command line.
     
    powercfg -h off   via admin powershell
