@Scott-Boucher This issue is definitely not fog related. I have seen this on multiple occasions and usually comes down to a UEFI machine with a SSD. either try disabling sleep is the advanced power settings, try disabling hibernation, Disable fast boot in bios, or theres a “turn off hard disk after” setting that you may want to see if thats disabled. I have linked this issue to usually the computers bios misidentifying the SSD as a HDD making windows use the wrong things to sleep/hibernate.
If you are using a HDD then try to see if there is a bios update for your machine and/or driver updates from the manufacturers website. Good Luck, this problem is proprietary to your type of device. Do some research in that and also look at disabling the settings.
I have also learned that 5400 rpm 2.5" HDD are absolutely horrible. If that is what you have within those machines, try to put in a SSD for a test and see if you get the same results.
