    Q-Code 40 means your PC has awoken from S4 sleep. What happens is in Windows 8/8.1 a feature called Fast Startup is on by default, it works by saving system info to a file upon shutdown so when you start your PC again, Windows uses that system info to resume your PC instead of restarting it.

    To disable this, right click your start menu and go to Power Options, then select Choose what the Power button does, then under Shutdown settings you can disable Fast Startup. Also, disable Fast Boot in your BIOS as well, it will be in the boot section.

    So it's normal?
    I did not know the meaning of it. If this is a normal Qcode then I am no longer busy
