How did it get into sleep? Are your energy settings such that the monitor is turned off earlier than the PC itself goes into hibernate? Or is it the PC that wakes up for some reason and - in turn - wakes up the monitor?

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?
