View Full Version : Windows 8 shut down problem

7 in 10, I can't shut down Windows 8 by clicking "shut down" button, each time I have to press power button for shutting down.

I feel so bad, and don't know if I press power button will hurt my hardware or not. How can I solve Windows 8 shut down problem?

many people meet this problem already. Most of them are due to hanging background process or Windows 8 services. I suggest you to close all processes before shut down. And kill some unnecessary Windows 8 services when it is running. This may solve Windows 8 shut down proble.

To close processes or Windows 8 services, you can use some tools like IObit Advanced SystemCare (http://blog.iobit.com/down/downloadcenter.php?product=asc-lyf)

Are you closing all programs before telling it to shut down? Also, does it do that every time or just some of the time?
