Hey Michael…

This may not be a permanent solution for you, but I wonder if it’ll
work. I personally like these kidns o commands and their decisive nature
and quick results, but you may prefer to shutdown throught eh gui.

Try this. Make sure everything you need is saved before this because you
will get no warning.

Open the run dialogue box with windows key + r

Type in the following, without quotes:

“shutdown /s /f /t 0”

Your machine should shut down almost instantly. If it doesn’t, yaeh,
something is definitely amiss.

Hi all, I'm sending this email out because I experienced a problem on my
computer. The problem that I have is that my computer won't turn off
everytime when I use the normal way to shut it down.  I did everything I
could to solve this problem but in the end, it was useless. Everytime
when I attempt to shut down the computer,

it says shutting down on the screen but the fan and the LED light next
to the power button still remain on. When I first experienced this
problem I thought that I packed my laptop with the switch facing down
the backpack. After I realized this, I immediately corrected how I
packed my laptop and the problem still existed. The laptop will get very
hot from the fan and the fan will remain running until the computer
battery drains out.

Have you all experienced this problem before? If so, how did you fix it?
I'm using an HP ENVY x360 Convertible 15m-ds0xxxs laptop with Windows10
21H1 (OS Build 19043.1237 and Jaws 2021 latest update.

Please let me know if there is a way to solve this or not.


Best regards

Michael H. munn
