David Evans, the hospital's attorney, said the hospital told Alice Pinette on Sunday it was planning to remove the ventilator on Wednesday. Evans told her attorney the next day.

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?
