Lenovo and Caps Lock

Lenovo provides a setting in the ThinkVantage software that adds a useful delay that prevents one from from accidentally unleashing the fury. I had to dig around to find it, but me and my arrant keystrokes love it.

I think they should keep the Caps Locks they just need to move it or I like what they suggested the double tap for shift for Caps Locks.

AutoHotKey freeware does so much more

Want to "remap" a key like the Caps Lock key? That's just one feature of AutoHotKey (freeware). Here's their feature snippet:

AutoHotkey is a free, open-source utility for Windows. With it, you can:

Automate almost anything by sending keystrokes and mouse clicks. You can write a mouse or keyboard macro by hand or use the macro recorder.

Create hotkeys for keyboard, joystick, and mouse. Virtually any key, button, or combination can become a hotkey.

Expand abbreviations as you type them. For example, typing "btw" can automatically produce "by the way".

Create custom data-entry forms, user interfaces, and menu bars. See GUI for details.

Remap keys and buttons on your keyboard, joystick, and mouse.

Respond to signals from hand-held remote controls via the WinLIRC client script.

Run existing AutoIt v2 scripts and enhance them with new capabilities.

Convert any script into an EXE file that can be run on computers that don't have AutoHotkey installed.

And with OS X, this feature is built in. Can remap caps lock to control. But then you still have a key labeled caps lock that does something differently. It's inelegant.

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?
