    Windows 10 won't shut off unless I do hard shutdown


    Upgraded my computer to win10 a month ago. I am getting used to it. But, I do have a problem. I cannot shut down my computer with the mouse. Only a "hard" shutdown works. I have tried using the Malicious Software Removal Tool and my Norton's 360 to run checks. I set both these to shut down the computer when finished. Neither can do so. I sometimes get a notice that "this app will not let me shutdown", but can't find a way to find out "what app" is blocking the shutdown. Any help would be appreciated.

    :)

    [Solved] Windows 10 and the shutdown button

    Duh, you're right.

    r - restart
    s - shutdown

    full shutdown command is:

    shutdown /s /t 0
