    Your problem sounds like it is related to the Windows "fast startup" feature.

    Fast startup only works from a boot after a shutdown, it is not active on a Windows restart.

    You can try disabling it and see if that makes a difference.

    From the Windows Power Options screen, select "Choose what the power buttons do". On that screen near the bottom locate the Shutdown settings options, and uncheck Turn on fast startup.

    I have never had this problem with Windows 8 or 8.1 on any of my ASRock boards.

    Thank you parsec.

    This is what i done and that solve my problem.

    1. Windows "fast startup" feature disable ( parsec suggestion )
    From the Windows Power Options screen, select "Choose what the power buttons do". On that screen near the bottom locate the Shutdown settings options, and uncheck Turn on fast startup.
    2. Press Del or F2 when booting up to enter BIOS > Advanced > Chipset Configuration > Deep Sleep(change it to enable in S4-S5 or enable in S5)

    Great, glad that worked for you.

    But, did you need to do BOTH things to fix the problem? In other words, just doing your step 1 alone did not solve the problem?

    No problem, thanks for your reply.

    I was just hoping to figure out why the fast start feature is causing that problem for you, but as is usual these things are more complicated and hard to fix.
