    [SOLVED] Unable to shutdown fully? The fan keeps running


    Hello everyone im having an issue right now that my computer won't shutdown the leds and fan still keep running after the screen has turned black. I need to hold the power button in order to shutdown my computer.

    Your computer is not shutting down at all. It is going into S1 sleep state.

    So, how do you "shutdown" your computer?

    From your description, it sounds as if you are doing this by pressing the power button. If so, then two things must be at work here: 1) your power button is programmed to put your computer to sleep (instead of shutting it down), 2) your BIOS is configured to put your computer into shallow sleep state (S1), instead of deep sleep state (S3).

    The first recommendation would be: stop trying to use power button to shut down your computer. Use Start Menu. Select Power -> Shut Down and it should propely shutdown your computer.

    If you really want to use power button to shutdown your compuer, then go to Control Panel -> Power Options. Select Choose what the power button does and then in the next window change the When I press the power button setting to Shut down.

    1. I use the start menu shutdown and the process goes into "shutting down" then it looks like it shutdown because my screen is turned off but my computer led is still on and fan are running so i need to hold the power in order to shutdown

    2. I have tried that. No success

    Check your Intel MEI version. I had the same issue on my laptop with MEI 11.0.0.xxxx installed and when I downgraded to version 9.5.15.1730 my issue got resolved.
