So assuming the answer to the previous question was _yes_ ...

Then there are various ways to force a full shutdown either one-off or
permanently.  Can you work out what works and submit a documentation
patch to improve things for Windows >= 8?

(1) Try this command: shutdown /s /t 0

Because the /hybrid option is not present it should force a full shutdown.

(2) From the GUI use [Shift] + shutdown option:


For permanently disabling hibernation:

(3) Use: powercfg /hibernate off

(4) Use: reg add "HKLM\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\Session Manager\Power" 
/v HiberbootEnabled /t REG_DWORD /d "0" /f

(3) & (4) might be equivalent, I'm not very clear and don't have a
convenient way to test right now.
