    Windows 10 not shutting down..


    Ever since I downloaded Windows 10 on my Asus computer it does NOT shut down all the way. When I click on shut down from the menu, it shuts down briefly but turns on immediately and stays on sleep mode or hybernation mode.

    WINDOWS 10 NOT SHUTTING DOWN

    Hi Michael, a common enough problem, it will require a registry fix . . .

    Click your Start Button, type regedit and hit Enter - this will open the Registry Editor

    In the left pand, navigate to:

    HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE - SYSTEM - CurrentControlSet - Control

    Then in the Right Pane double click WaitToKillServiceTimeout and change the value to 1000

    Click OK

    Then back in the left Pane, close up all those folders (keys) again (click in the left pane and press left arrow on your keyboard a few times)

    In the left pand, navigate to:

    HKEY_CURRENT_USER - Control Panel - Desktop

    Then in the right pane, right click in the blank space and choose New - String Value

    Name the String Value WaitToKillServiceTimeout

    Then double click WaitToKillServiceTimeout

    Set its value to 1000

    Save and close the Registry Editor

    That's It!

    Windows 10 not shutting down..

    I have a similar issue on an Asus laptop, has been there all the time since installing Windows 10 and remained through all Insider build upgrades. At the moment running Build 14322. Let's hope someone comes up with an idea.

    In my case shutdown leaves the laptop partially on, the power led on, and I have to hard reset, press and hold the power button down for a few seconds. Interesting is that a shutdown works a short time after Windows has been booted; if I shutdown within a few minutes after booting, laptop will shutdown normally.

    I have given up and decided to live with this, Asus support is worthless. I have learned to shutdown with restart: when shutting down I restart, and when Windows reboots to sign-in screen I finally shutdown. This always works.
