    Computer won't shut down, Windows 10.


    I upgraded to Windows 10 from 7, everything went pretty smooth surprisingly, not perfect though. I was able to shut down my computer with 10 for some time, but all of a sudden the power button doesn't turn off. That is either through Start > Shut Down, or even holding the computers Shut Down button.

    There are hundreds of posts to this problem, but none of the solutions offered seem to work in my case. Any idea what might be keeping it on? By the way, I didn't see any suspicious Microsoft Updates either.

    Thanks for any insights.

    :)

    Idling problem

    After downloading Windows 10, every time my computer idles and I try to get back on the screen stays black and won't bring anything back up again. My computer is still on, but it won't let me do anything. Also, I have to press the power button to turn
    off my computer. It won't shut down after going through the start menu and selecting shut down; it just goes black like when it's idling and won't shut down or let me access anything.

  3. my computer won't shut down properly.

    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? Thanks In Advance.

    Did you look in to the solution involving the Intel Management Engine driver? Your system specs don't say, so does the computer have an Intel chipset?

    Yes, I did check the Intel Management Engine by uninstalling it and trying to update the driver. But no go. Sorry about the specs, I'll add them momentarily.

    I've updated my specs list. Is there anything in particular you'd be looking for? Something not on the list, perhaps external hard drives, peripheral devices, etc? I spend more time trying to get Windows to work than getting any actual work done.

    This works:
    Device Manager/ System Devices/ Intel(R) Management Engine Interface
    Then: right click properties and select driver, uninstall and OK.
    Next reboot, check driver - should have rolled back to an earlier version.

    Nah, not for me unfortunately. I tried updating the driver, uninstalling it, rolling it back, whatever...computer will not shut down. That is, either by Power > Shut Down or pressing the On/Off button on my computer.
