PC shuts down, but the fans and lights remain on still

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
there was a pretty big update for windows 10 recently, and after the update my PC will not shutdown all the way. The monitor, keyboard, and mouse all shutdown but my PC still remains lingering with the lights on and fans still spinning. I have to press the power button once to turn it off completely.

any idea how to fix this annoying problem?

Try win key plus r, which should bring up the run prompt, and type "shutdown -s -t 0" without the quotation marks. It should shutdown the computer immediately....

This plus some sound card issues is why I reinstalled Windows 8.1.

I found out what it was. I went to power options and turned off fastboot for windows.
