Sharpness

I just bought this tv and I am looking ofr optimal picture settings. I noticed you put Sharpness at 12. Doesn't that make the picture to soft looking and take away from HD? Just curious as I am not near my tv right now. Thank you for any help.

I also noticed you have it on movie mode. Should it be on this mode when watching any programs including HD tv shows? Thank you

Movie mode on the Samsung UN65F8000B Flatscreen TV

The reason we utilized the aforementioned is because it's one of the only modes open and not locked-out to set parameters for calibration. The other is Standard mode and it has "economy mode" as a default and you can't override it.

Just recently obtained our Samsung UN65F8000B Flatscreen and had expertly calibrated. I'm just passing on the parameters the technician utilized on our TV.

The technician said that most people think that a higher sharpness would be better but apparently not. We just had ours expertly calibrated and the picture image on the Flatscreen is excellent.

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?
