Having Trouble Shutting Down Windows 10? Try this…
We have had a number of people write us since the introduction of Windows 10 who are having trouble getting their Windows 10 PC to shut down completely, and instead goes into a sleep state but won’t wake normally from this state.
First open Control Panel, change the view to Large icons (in the top right corner). Click Power Options. In Power Options, on the left-hand side, click “Change what the power buttons do”. Make sure “When I press the power button” is set to “Shut down”.
If your computer still won’t shut down completely when you press the power button, try this:
— In Control Panel open Power Options.
— Click on “Change settings that are currently unavailable” to show the hidden options.
— In Power Options, on the left-hand side, click “Change what the power buttons do”. Make sure “When I press the power button” is set to “Shut down”.
— Next, uncheck “Turn on fast startup (recommended:”
— Be sure to save your changes.
— Now try shutting off your PC.

We hope this helps some of you who are having problems shutting down your Windows 10 PC.
