We have dozens of them at the office.

No one at the office bought the units ready to use. But then again, we have philips screwdrivers which I think are banned from most offices.

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
