  1. Win 10 shuts down when Idle


    Win 10 Home shuts down when Idle

    I see people have been having this same issue for years without any successful solution.

    I too have tried all the tips & tricks without success.

    This issue is fairly new for my PC. Never had this happen until a few months ago.

    It is very annoying having to make sure anything running gets saved before I walk away for a few minutes.

    It is a big waste of time having to restart and reopen everything.


    On a different note, createexplorershellunelevatedtask adds 179 seconds to my startups.

    This is something I do not see a need for, but can't get rid of.


    Again, I do not expect any solutions to be found as people have been complaining about both of these for some time.

    I need a miracle to happen and have someone find solutions that work.

    :)

  2. Computer shuts down when idle

    You're getting a little closer to finding the rogue program. It not only shuts down Windows when idle but it also interferes with msconfig. The next step is obvious: Run msconfig while in Safe Mode.

  3. win 10 will not shut down properly

    Hi Richard,

    Usually, this issue occur due to outdated or corrupted device drivers, services or processes which are not shutting down properly, or third-party programs that prevents your computer to shut down properly. For better assistance, we'll be needing additional
    information:

    • Have you made any recent changes on your computer prior to the issue?
    • Is this an error message Explorer\windows\settingsync\BackgroundUploadTask? If yes, where are you getting this message?
    • If possible, can you send us a screenshot?

    Meanwhile, we suggest that you run the Power troubleshooter as an initial troubleshooting step. To run the Power troubleshooter, follow the steps below:

    • Press Windows key + X and select Settings.
    • Choose Update & Security from the list.
    • Click Troubleshoot in the left pane of the window.
    • Under Find and fix other problems, select Power
      and click Run the troubleshooter.

    We'll keep an eye out for your response.

    Windows 10 shutting down at idle

    My computer shuts down when left idle for 3 minutes or so. I have set all the settings to NEVER turn off. It still does. I can be working on something and thinking, then I have to log back in to continue. This is very frustrating. I have tried all
    the suggestions on resetting the power settings. Can you help?
