    For 30 years, I've used two power settings on my PC's, and the PC's of my many customers.....

    ON and OFF. Anything else is iffy at best and catastrophic at worse.

    So for the greatest safety, when you're done using your PC for the day, turn it off.

    I've been told, that when you tell Win-8 to shut down, it doesn't really turn itself OFF.

    So I just do what I've been doing since '98 and I run a little Quick Shutdown shortcut from my desktop.

    %windir%\System32\shutdown.exe -s -t 00 -f

    Put that shortcut on your desktop and use it to shut down your PC.
    It's SAFE and FAST!

    Good Luck!

    I didn't know it could cause problems to tell windows to shut down. If it doesn't really turn of is it just hibernating basically or sleeping?
