Windows 10 fast startup bugs

So windows 10 has this fast startup thing. And here I thought it was my SSD making it fast. If fast startup is on, the computer starts up in fast SSD time. If its off, it will sit there for 3 minutes starting up. Anyone know why exactly that is? I know it says "fast startup" but I didn't think the alternative would be "slow as $%!+ startup".

Ok on to the real issue. The real issue is with fast startup turned on (under power options) there is a bug where if you hit shut down, it will just restart the computer. Effectively giving you no real way to shut the computer down. Cause of course hitting the power button just gives you the same results. This happens more often than not, but its somewhat intermittent. Maybe 1 out of every 5 times you try, it will go ahead and really shut down. The rest of the time it just restarts. Pretty annoying. Especially since there's no telling what microsoft will be doing with your computer while it runs all night long. I guess there's no telling what they're doing while you run it during the day, but hey I don't see any reason to give them even more time to do whatever they damn well please.

I'll be switching to Linux soon, but I'll still be running windows 10 every once in awhile to play games.

It causes issues if you dual boot too. I don't even see my BIOS splash screen unless I'm hitting delete like crazy. Can't count how many times it's ignored me and booted into windows anyway.
EDIT:
Don't allow MS to collect telemetry data, install bloatware and all that stuff. I've had nothing but good things to say about 10 since disabling all that garbage.

Yeah I've spent a lot of time learning about how to turn that stuff off, and installed a few things to make it stay off. Problem is every time they put out a new update, they like to turn at least a few of them back on. So I turned off updates too. All in all, I think that I have nothing but bad things to say about windows 10. I'm assuming 8 was the same way, just not perfected. But I skipped 8 because ugh... metro. It seems to me that the amount of negatives with windows 10 outweighs the positives.

I've also had nothing but trouble out of dual booting. I've tried it many times and the boot loaders always end up fighting each other. Which pretty much ruins things for me and I end up having to reinstall windows. My computer will do weird stuff, like just freezing on the motherboard splash screen. Which it will never do if only windows is installed. I think windows just does not play nice with other OS's. So I've determined to just have a gaming rig and a main rig for daily use, which will be a linux rig.
