Have you found a faster/better/smarter way to shut down Windows 10? Microsoft is conducting an online survey to understand your opinion of the Technet Web site.Mouse over that option and then click "Shut down." This is still a slow, two-click method (with a mouse-over mixed in), but at least it's not three clicks.An oldie but goodie, pressing Alt-F4 brings up a Windows shut-down menu, with the shut-down option already selected by default.Even worse, seems like the CPU gets stuck in an infinite loop, the system generates a lot of heat and fans spin to their maximum :o.I'm going to reinstall the OS anyway, i'll see if this happen again.
To solve the problem, type in cmd with admin rights the following: net stop wuauserv [then] cd %systemroot% [then] ren Software Distribution [then] net start wuauserv This worked for me: Device Manager/ System Devices/ Intel(R) Management Engine Interface Then: right click properties and select driver (currently version 11.xxx), uninstall and OK.Next, in the list of options on the left, click "Choose what the power buttons do." As you'll see, there are two pull-down menus next to "When I press the power button" -- one each for On Battery and Plugged In (unless you have a desktop, in which case you'll probably see just the latter). If your PC's power button is inconveniently located, or you're just feeling indignant about Windows' three-click shutdown process, you can add a shutdown shortcut to your desktop.Just right-click any open space on the desktop, then click New Then click Next and finish the shortcut setup. Now you've got a Shutdown icon; one double-click and it's buh-bye, Windows.MP There were no issues with Win7 earlier and there are no issues with Linux now, so obviously its not the problem of H/w.It has to be the issue with communication between H/w and a particular O/s. I think this is due to the new Windows 10 shutdown process.
