I love my Canon A620 for close-ups!

I'm not sure how the new models compare, but it has taken amazing close-ups (lots of bugs and flowers) and it is an all around great camera. I have also used a A610 with great results.

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?
