    Aside from waking it up from sleep mode, is there a lot of data on the drive?
    Windows 10 tends to boot especially fast already, the less data there is on a hard drive the faster it will boot
    Most maintenance I tend to do to "speed up" older systems with mechanical hard drives for free is to free up some space on them

    IIRC some of those had an 'ultra fast boot' setting on a few boards that sped up the timeouts on device discovery and similar.

    My PC takes longer to show the POST/BIOS screen than it does to boot the rest of the way :p
