Why not add this

Why not add this to your original post for this issue?

Also, a few more details about what exactly is going on. Give a sample scenario starting from your computer in the off position and you pressing the power button. Work your way from there to what issue you are describing, because it seems like you could be talking about at least two different possible scenarios and to be of any help to you at all, we'd need to be sure which one it is, or even if it's a third option.

Add all of this to your original post rather than creating a third.

This is one of many reasons why members should not cross post.

To be fair, he didn't lock the original until after I posted my response, but probably before my alert about this one being a duplicate was noticed.

First I saw your alert about duplicates. Then I had a look, and I thought it made most sense to lock the post with the least info and make a link there to the one with more info.

Either way

Either way, point being instead of making 2+ posts drip feeding info as you go along, make one post and then supply additional details if/as needed. There can be a fair bit of variation in customs across various forums across the Internet, but that is probably a universal.

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?
