    restart and kernel-power event

    Hi,



    The kernel power event ID 41 error occurs when the computer is shut down, or it restarts unexpectedly. When a computer that is running Windows starts, a check is performed to determine whether the computer was shut down cleanly. If the computer was not shut
    down cleanly, a Kernel Power Event 41 message is generated.



    Try this, see if it works for you:

    • Go to "Settings"
    • Select "System"
    • Select "Power and Sleep"
    • Select "Additional Power Settings"
    • Select "Choose what the power buttons do"
    • Select "Change settings currently available"
    • Ensure that "Turn on fast start up" is deselected (unticked)
    • Click on "Save Changes"


    Restart your computer after performing the steps.



    Let us know if the above steps resolved the issue.

    I moved parts to a new PC case and then suddenly I get the random sleep and random shut downs. It happens at random, sometimes 1 hour later and sometimes 12 hours later. I tried everything I could think off but nothing seems to be fixing this issue. I
    thought maybe my new GTX 1060 was an issue and this is the response I received a few days ago. "The message means that you pushed the power or sleep button on the case to power off the PC. Check that your connections inside the case to the motherboard's power
    pins are secure, and if the board has a physical power button on it, that nothing is making contact with the button. Make sure that the button on the case isn't sticking, and that your keyboard doesn't have a power button that you might be hitting accidentally."
    I can tell you that I never pushed the buttons and I checked the power pins and they all seemed to be fine, so did I received a defective PC case? Please help, I am getting fed up.

    the kernel power has initiated a shutdown

    Windows 10 shutdown power still light and fan still working

    Hi,

    Thank you for posting in Microsoft Community.

    I understand that the laptop will not shutdown completely. We will help you.

    I suggest you to try the below steps and check if it helps you.

    • Remove all the externally connected devices and cables including the battery.
    • Hold the power button for about a minute and release the power button.
    • Connect only the power cable and power on the PC.
    • Check if the issue persists.
    Keep us posted to help you better.
