What are you trying to do? It's pretty straight forward, there isn't really a need for a tutorial. All the important changes are in the advanced section.

Your motherboard manual should have a detailed description of the bios settings. If you don't have it, you can download it here...

Are you having trouble with hardware? If not then why bother changing anything, if you're just trying to get to grips on it then simply google for the terms used and you'll get detailed descriptions of the lot. Very simple and to can then decide which things to turn on or off.

Windows - at least clear back to XP has things built-in like Hibernation and Standby mode which allow you to go "from off to on in a flash" - AMD, INTEL or whatever.

Don't waste your time install that, I don't even know why that was even released...

Just tell your computer to go into sleep mode, not hybrid or hibernate sleep. It's the same thing.

The only difference between the two is one lets your power back up without having any power at all to the system while the other one requires a very small amount. However the one that drains a small amount boots much faster.

Also if you turn on hybrid sleep it's the same thing as intels rapid start but slower.

You need an SSD to enable IRST. Read about it here.
