You can press the power button to turn it back on.

Hi, I’ve never used the hibernate
function. How do you wake it back up again?
Sincerely, Vicky V
Hello Gene, I have a hibernate option in my shutdown options,
so I think to save on power, I'll use that and shutdown. I've
also set it to hibernate after a certain amount of time not
being used, so I can turn off power and back on again. Thank
you for your help.

don't know what might cause the problem. Of course, you
can shut down and turn the power off as you found. I'm
not sure how Windows presents options in the shutdown
dialog these days. If there is just a hibernate option,
you should be able to shut off power. But if it is a
sleep/hibernate hybrid, don't do it, And never in
sleep. In other words, if you are going to turn power
off at the socket, unless you are sure you are in
hibernate, or you have fully shut down, don't do it.
shouldn't have to deal with the problem often. You
should be able to leave the computer running for a while
without starting to get performance problems. How long
may depend on how you use the computer and perhaps on
things I don't know about. But you can experiment or
just try a good amount of time such as four days or five
days. You may shorten or lenghthen the time, depending
on results. You don't even have to bother turning off
the power. When you reboot, do it at a time of day when
you are doing something else like eating or going to bed
or something else. If you reboot the computer often,
such as daily, that is unnecessary.
if you really want to reboot daily, or shut down daily,
you may do so, leave the power on and not bother turning
the power off, and boot again when the delay won't
matter because you will be doing something else.
let's say you want to reboot when you intend to use the
computer, such as when installing a program. Shut down,
turn the power off, as you found solves the problem,
then boot after turning it on again.
short, you could try to solve the problem but doing so
at this point my be disruptive and waste enough time
that you may just want to leave things as they are. It
can be easily and conveniently worked around.

Re: [TechTalk] Sluggish Boot on Windows 10
I have a solid state drive that's 5 years old this year. I
use another hard drive for my data. I don't think it's
that, because if I remember to turn off the power at the
plug and turn it back on, it seems to work fine. I tried
the suggestions on the websites you sent Gene, and my
drivers are up to date and fast boot is disabled.

How old is your computer? It may need a
new hard drive. I had a new one installed on my old
computer three months ago when it was slow to start and
had other issues. Now, it's as good as new. You also might
want to check programs that run on start-up to see if
they're slowing your computer down. Good luck.
