The "Cloud" is killing polar bears says Greenpeace...

excerpt:
*****
"The last thing we need is for more cloud infrastructure to be built in places where it increases demand for dirty coal-fired power,'' said Greenpeace, which argues that Web companies should be more careful about where they build and should lobby more in Washington for clean energy.

The growing mass of business data, home movies and pictures has ballooned beyond the capabilities of many corporate data centers and personal computers, spurring the creation of massive server farms that make up a "cloud,'' an emerging phenomenon known as cloud computing.

hmmm, this "news" could kill some programmers' mojo...

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?
