VW Golf TDI alternative

Like many, I will be looking for a replacement vehicle for my VW
Golf Sportswagon when (and if) the buy back occurs. Which vehicles should I be looking at? Golf TSI Sportswagon? Mazda 3?
Audi A3?

Mileage? Look again at the Prius line.

Reviews were great: performance, fuel economy, style, capacity.

We've had the 2016 Prius model 3 for 6 months.

But we've own hybrid something or other since 2002. The last one was OK at first till Honda fixed it (2006 Honda Civic Hybrid was in the news) and so I was on the fence about Prius and with the updates on the 2016, we went that way.

The model 3 nicely equipped was 29K. Wish they had the model 4 without leather seats. The extra smarts are really great there. Also, my neighbor went with the 2015 Nissan Altima. It has all the goods.

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?
