Further, you can always google away for more info or details on psu (power supply).

It was a big mystery for me

Until I got a battery backup for my computer during power outages. The battery on it comes with a monitor that monitors how much draw is being taken in at the plug you plug into it. I just plugged my computer in (and not my monitor) and it's reading 160 watts. That gives me 15 minutes of battery backup the monitor says.

I was kinda disappointed too, because when I bought a nice video card I was under the impression that I had to get a bigger power supply (my current one is 350 watts). So I bought a big one (470), went thru the unnecessary hassle of pulling out the old one, and plugging in the new one, and here it was for nothing.

But there's a rumor from rumor control (geek headquarters I guess) that some Intel processors spike draw, which I haven't seen yet from my 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?
