Okay so I decided to post this on here to see if any computer whizzes had an answer for this. I use an Asus Q502LA laptop as my daily computer. I've noticed recently that when I turn it on. It runs good. However, when I restart it while it's already on (no matter how long it's been on), it runs noticeably faster and more responsive. I cannot put my hand on what the difference is between turning it on the first time and restarting it. Things like navigating through the file explorer, browsing websites on Chrome and analyzing and playing music in Serato is all quicker after the restart. It'd be nice if it can run like this when I turn it on the first time lol. Anyone has any thoughts on what it might be?
