Hi, every morning my win 10 pc seems to have a hangover, everything drags. Tried many things, only a restart works. Used schedule manager to auto restart during the night, but it's not working - win is still too slow.
Have wake the computer set and everything else looks good to go in scheduler .... and in the system log there is a 6006 at the right time (this should happen last thing before the restart, and is apparently usually a good indicator of a restart)

BUT, if I run in cmd: systeminfo | find /i “Boot Time” it confirms that the restart didn't happen, shows a time that I know was my last manual reboot.

Beyond my level of expertise now, help would be much appreciated :)

Do you have a password on the using account?
The use of the schedule manager requires a pass worded account

Yes, using my user account, I just re-entered the pw
I have - "run whether user is logged on or not" & "Wake the computer to run this task"
I'm running C:\Windows\System32\shutdown.exe -F -R

I have attached a csv log of all the events at that time - it looks like the restart has succeeded, but I am sure it hasn't, because:
a) The -R switch should mean that only the startup pgms start afterwards, instead all the pgms that were running when I finished yesterday, are still running - all browsers with all tabs still open for example.
b) The problem with memory is there already when I login - 88% of memory used.

If I manually restart, the browsers etc. don't load, and memory use is around half (~40%).

Hope this helps?
Is there any debug help - more verbose logging of some sort?
