  1. Windows says folder was modified when desktop power suppl switched off


    This is a curiosity more than a problem, but I thought to ask anyways

    Last night (well, technically this morning since it was after midnight), my desktop completed the Windows 10 Anniversary update. I shut down the computer around 1 AM. I switched off the main power supply before going to bed. Until 8PM, the computer remained thoroughly switched off.

    I noticed that the Windows.old folder that claims that it was modified and created at 4:08 AM when the computer was completely without power. Anyone have an explanation? My computer time is set properly.

    :)

  2. windows 10 update

    hi , i've just started the windows 10 update , and there was a power cut , when the power was restored the desktop switched on but there is no signal to the monitor .i'm only getting a no signal sign on the monitor screen , ive tried 2 different hdmi cables
    but no luck .I assume the desktop is running because I can switch the cap lock switch on the keyboard on and off

    How can I turn off my screen without locking my computer? (for Win 10)

    If this is a desktop you could get a power cable that had a switch in it and just switch off the power to the monitor.
