    For about 8 months I have been getting a blue window popping up stating that "You will be signed out, Windows will shut down in less than a minute."

    I have done everything I can to refuse the reboot of the system during certain hours and requiring the system to notify me of a pending reboot requirement.


    This happens randomly and at any time it wishes, with no way to intervene. It does not restart, it just shuts down completely and I have to manually power the machine on.


    This has occurred 2 times in the last 24 hours.

    12:54 AM on Feb 22 and at 7:17PM Feb 22.


    It would be impossible to determine this through the process of elimination due to the disparity in time this usually occurs. It could be weeks, months, or twice in 24 hours.

    • Under ‘When I press the power button’ choose the option you want to change it to
      Shut Down.
    • Click ‘Save changes’ to save the changes.

    If the issue persists, I suggest you to run the Power troubleshooter and check if it helps.

  3. The light on the power button stays on even after shut down.

    Hi,

    Thank you for posting your query on Microsoft Community.

    As per your description, I understand that the light on the power button stays on even after shut down.

    We will assist you to resolve the issue.

    This issue may arise due to various reasons:


    • System not properly shut down or might be in sleep mode.

    • Power cord connected to the device.

    • Change in the settings.
    I would appreciate if you could answer few questions to narrow down to the issue.


    • What is the make and model of the computer?

    • Did you make any recent changes to the settings?

    • Does the CPU fan spins after the shutdown?
    As an initial troubleshooting step, (if you are using a laptop).

    Unplug the charger from the lap top and check if the issue persists and also try to shut down from the lock screen.

    If the issue persists, I suggest you to run the Power troubleshooter and check if it helps.

    Follow these steps to run Power troubleshooter:

    1. Type troubleshooting in the search bar.
