Must use that laptop some 6+ hours a day. There are very few laptops made that will get that much battery time. In fact look around you. Notice something? People carry the charger with them.

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?
