  1. Windows Not Properly Powering Off


    Hello,


    When I click Start Shutdown, my computer turns off. However, when I open the Task Manager the next day, my computer says it has been open for 37 days. How do you shut down the computer so that it does not have so much time awake. I want to force it to shut down but hitting the power button also doesnlt solve the problem. I have hit Control button as I have hit the start power button but that does not work either. Windows Not Properly Powering Off 1195497a-f763-4f9f-aecd-673ceb70292f?upload=true.png
