    Forcing Windows 10 to Shutdown

    Does anyone know how to force the inactivity timer to actually work? The problem seems to be that VLC player is disabling it, but I really don't want it to. I want the PC to shut down after a certain inactivity timeout no matter what. Anyone know how?

    Post the output of running the following command from an admin powershell:
    powercfg /requests
    You will probably want to use to do an override based on the /requests output.
