If the driver itself is removed (should not do that while the computer is running), or if the CD is removed lol?

I mean the CD-Drive is plugged and the computer is booted. Then, I remove it while Linux is already loaded. Just HotPlugging.

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?
