Also, is that mode? I don't care for moody computers but getting back to an example, I've left my laptop on sleep mode for days. I prefer hibernation or off for long periods.

It might be best to close out stuff and back it down to the desktop then put it in sleep mode.

When you get back just tap a key and in a few seconds your back at the desktop.

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?
