Jesus/Satan joke

Jesus and Satan had been having an ongoing argument for months - about who was better on the computer.

They went at it for days, weeks at a time, and frankly, God was getting tired of hearing all the bickering.

Finally fed up, God said,"THAT'S IT! I have had enough. I am going to set up a test that will run for two hours, and from those results, I will judge who does the better job." So Satan and Jesus sat down at their respective keyboards and when the bell sounded began typing away.

They moused.They faxed. They e-mailed. They e-mailed with attachments. They downloaded. They did spreadsheets! They wrote reports. They created labels
and cards, endless charts and graphs. They did genealogy reports, etc., etc., and every possible computing job known to man.

Jesus worked with heavenly efficiency --- but Satan was fast as hell.

Then, ten minutes before their time was up, lightning flashed suddenly across the sky, thunder rolled, rain poured, and, of course, the power went off.

Satan just stared at his blank screen - and screamed every curse word known in the underworld. Jesus just sighed.

Finally, the electricity came back on and each of
them restarted his computer. Satan began searching frantically and screaming: "It's gone! It's all GONE! "I lost everything when the power went out!"

A few feet away, Jesus quietly printed out all of
the files from his past two hours of work, neat and complete.

Satan saw this and became furious. "Hey!" he yelled,"that's not fair! Jesus cheated! How else could he have all of his work - and I don't have

God just shrugged and said, "Jesus saves."

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?
