    Fast startup is an option designed for mobile devices with internal batteries, such as tablets, 2-in-1, laptops. If you're going to cut off the power completely from the Z83-4 all the time (e.g. turning off the power socket, unplugging the power adapter from the unit randomly), it's recommended that to turn this option off to avoid data loss as a result of improper shutdown. (Fast startup requires to power to remain ON at all time since the "shutdown" is not real)

    Thanks for replying so quickly. I've tried Fast Startup off and unfortunately the Z83-4 still does not power on automatically after you restore power after a power loss. I've also rechecked the BIOS and the AC ON feature is still enabled. For my purposes with these units, I plan on having the remote Z83-4 powered on 24/7. In the event of a power outage, I must have the Z83-4 power up automatically once local power is restored. Fairly simple request for that BIOS feature to accomplish. As mentioned in a past email, previous Z83-4 units purchased are successful at doing this. It just happened on the last two purchased.
