The previous system shutdown at 8:48:37 PM on 9/10/2019 was unexpected.
Event 41, Kernel-Power
The system has rebooted without cleanly shutting down first. This error could be caused if the system stopped responding, crashed, or lost power unexpectedly.

First things first--turn off *fastboot*--both inside Windows if you have it turned on, and in the bios if you have enabled it. If you boot from SSD or NVMe you just don't need it, not to mention that it's always been problematic for as long as I can recall. I post and boot to the Win10 desktop in ~10 seconds, cold boot or warm, makes no difference. Fastboot is a hangover from the HDD days, when it could take 90 seconds-120 seconds to get to the desktop.
