Though I'm not sure why you want to use a laptop as your server.

You just need to install a server program. And there are several reasons why you might want to do this.

Web developers might run their own web server to aid in checking their work. Someone might set up a FTP server because Windows file sharing is simply too unreliable and difficult to manage. I have some programs that are technically servers that allow me to do certain things with my PSP. There's a bunch of reasons why someone might want to do this.

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?
