  1. Desktop self boots up from shutdown


    using window's 10, i often shutdown my desktop completely but for whatever reason, it randomly boots itself back up.

    been doing this for a while now, but recently becoming more frequent. I have waken up middle of the night, and hear my computer boot up by itself.

    I'm not putting it to sleep, it's a complete shutdown, thinking about putting it on it's own power strip and flipping the switch when i'm not using it. Any ideas would be good ty.

    ShutDown button in desktop (Win-10)

    Hi Marcel,

    Thank you for your interest in Windows 10.

    You can create shortcut for Shutdown, restart and sleep by following the below steps:

    • First right-click on the desktop, choose New and then Shortcut.
    • In the shortcut location box, you’ll need to enter the correct command, which I’ve listed for you below.
    • For Shutdown type the below command:
    Shutdown.exe -s -t 00

    • For Restart type the below command:
    Shutdown.exe -r -t 00

    • For Sleep type the below command:
    rundll32.exe powrprof.dll,SetSuspendState 0,1,0

    After you click Finish, you should now have a new icon that you can double-click to immediately shutdown, restart, or lock your computer.

    Hope this information helps, for further assistance please reply.

  3. My pc takes for ever to shut down when i restart

    Suggest cleaning up your startup list .There may be many services / Apps you can remove on startup which is not needed on boot or during shutdown.
    Before you shutdown the Pc check what is running in Task Manager as a program or service in not killing the process on shutdown

    Would suggest cleaning up running apps and services -Autoruns, StartupMonitor,HighjackThis,
    Malware Scan - Malwarebytes,ADWcleaner, Combofix

    Desktop self boots up from shutdown

    ShutDown button in desktop (Win-10)

    yeah it works but i have another problem with this combination.

    Shutdown/Restart shortcut force windows to shutdown without letting other apps to save their data, that is a bit nuisance.

    for eg:

    Utorrent is force closed and when i start the pc, it re-calculate all the toorents in the list even those that are already downloaded and currently in seeding state. It happens when utorrent is not closed properly.

    So is there any way to NORMALLY shutdown/restart/loggoff/lock windows pc?
