By default, Windows 8 (Frankenstein the Elder) and Windows
10 (Frankenstein the Younger) do not actually
shutdown or power off. They go into suspend. This
is to make Windows look like it boots quickly. This
makes it a hassle to get to bios to boot off a flash drive.

--> power back up and guess what the f keys bios is
