There is usually at least one April Fools story that falls through the cracks that people take for real.
This "appears" to be one of them. Slashdot and Digg were each reporting this as actual news. But if you look at the date this article was originally posted, it appears to be just be a simple April Fool's joke.
Is it possible than EMI could've leaked a story no one would believe as legit? Yes, but I doubt it.

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?
