Try disabling fast Startup - assuming that you have Windows 8, 8.1 or 10.

I have had the same issue with a couple of machines and disabling fast Startup is generally a good fix for the problem ... I.e., with fast Startup enabled it is not a true shutdown and unless you can isolate the problem to a specific device which may allow the computer to reboot with fast Startup enabled ... this is sort of a solve all.

Give it a go and see if it solves the issue and if so your boot time is really not going to be impacted dramatically anyway.

it has to do with your automatic maintenance mode in your pc control panel settings

go to your control panel -> system and security -> action center -> automatic maintenance. turn off: "allow scheduled maintenance to wake up my pc"

hope it helps
