Hey I'm new in this. I forgot what I'm doing. Help me maybe?

So, I am in the market for a new lappy. I just have no idea what to get. Well, that's an understatement. I know damn well what I want

Windows OS, 500GB or a TB, i5 processor sounds good, moderate hardware, not doing media editing and stuff, I go on the intranet evey now and then, size and weight isn't much of an issue, please none of that hybrid tablet stuff, I like gaming, but I'll save that for the console, however, I like my Minecraft (basic no mods) and I have a copy of Skyrim Legendary Edition for PC. I don't do hardcore gaming. And I'm gonna keep it to those two games really. And then black.I like the color black. Hehehehehehe. Also, I noted that optical drives are dying out so that's cool, not really important to me, and a relatively quiet lappy too. Well, at least not too loud. My budget is 800 and under

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?
