  1. Power button LED on while PC is SHUT DOWN


    Hello, I have a Dell OptiPlex 7050 SFF and ever since my I installed a Windows update, when I shutdown my computer the Power Button LED remains white, basically making it impossible for me to tell when it is on/off.I've had this computer for like two months and this has never happened before. I turned off the quick restart option in the power settings of control panel, but no luck.

    :)

    Unable to boot up after shutting down the pc with the power button on

    Your only option will be to power off.

    Then try disconnecting power, holding the power button in for a minute, release, connect power, try rebooting.

    If that fails, see if you can at least get into the BIOS.

    If not, presumably you've a hardware problem.

    And suggest that if you can boot up, you use the shut down button on your screen.
    (I'm still not convinced you're not powering your PC down- when you use the physical button, how long do you press it for, and what's it configured to do?)

  4. Power button LED on while PC is SHUT DOWN

    The light on the power button stays on even after shut down.

    Hi,

    Thank you for posting your query on Microsoft Community.

    As per your description, I understand that the light on the power button stays on even after shut down.

    We will assist you to resolve the issue.

    This issue may arise due to various reasons:


    • System not properly shut down or might be in sleep mode.

    • Power cord connected to the device.

    • Change in the settings.
    I would appreciate if you could answer few questions to narrow down to the issue.


    • What is the make and model of the computer?

    • Did you make any recent changes to the settings?

    • Does the CPU fan spins after the shutdown?
    As an initial troubleshooting step, (if you are using a laptop).

    Unplug the charger from the lap top and check if the issue persists and also try to shut down from the lock screen.

    If the issue persists, I suggest you to run the Power troubleshooter and check if it helps.

    Follow these steps to run Power troubleshooter:

    1. Type troubleshooting in the search bar.

    2. Select Troubleshooting.

    3. Select View all on the top left corner.

    4. Click on Power.

    5. Follow the on-screen instructions to run the troubleshooter.

    6. Check if issue persists.

    Hope the information helps. Let us know if you need further assistance. We will be happy to help.

    Thank you.
