Windows 10: Fan still running after shut lid and shut down

    Fan still running after shut lid and shut down

    Hey guys,

    I have noticed this problem come up on my Dell 7537 (Check out my profile for details) when I close the lid to put the computer to sleep, the HDD light turns off, but the fan continues to run, even after several hours. When I open the lid back up, it is just a black screen where I have to hold the power button to do a hard reset. The same thing happens with initiating a shutdown sequence, although that one only does it some of the time. Closing the lid does it every time. Anyone know what could be causing this?

    Go over all your Power Options again in the Control Panel, set them back to defaults if you have to, start from square one.

    Well that appears to have worked. I just reset all of the power settings their defaults, restarted the computer, and now everything works.
