To take a line from Lord of the Rings,"I don't know why...but it makes me sad." - Sam (movie, Fellowship of the Ring).

It's just too bad...

It's also interesting how people humanize and even empathize with gadgets. Stuff like giving your iPod a nickname or petting your robot dog, etc.
In more extreme cases, I've heard of U.S. Army soldiers writing notes to iRobot (manufacturer of the PackBot that soldiers use in Iraq, etc.) to "please fix Scooby-Doo, he saved my life more than once."

anyone here humanize your gadgets?

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?
