like sleep walking people - you have to be real careful about waking them up as they (or their owner) might get unruly.

Your girlfriend will know the password if she wants you to have 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?
