    I'm hoping someone else can explain why the Power Management tab is missing. I am running Intel's version that may have come from either Windows 10's setup or Windows Update. I didn't install this version on my own.

    It should be there, but have you looked elsewhere, in device manager, for that option?

    Hey guys,

    my Computer won't shut down. If you try to shut down the LED on the Powerbutton will continue to be on and you can clearly hear all the fans inside running. It's stuck in Limbo. Only after pressing the power button for a view seconds it properly shuts down.

    I've spent weeks looking for a solution, now I'm just really disappointed by Windows and myself for not getting this fixed. I really hope you guys can help me.

    this is my system:

    Intel Core i5 2500k CPU
    Asus P8P67 Rev 3. Mainboard
    Kingston 16GB HyperX DDR3 RAM
    Samsung 850 Evo 500GB SSD
    2nd 500GB HDD
    Corsair 500W CM9 PSU

    this is what I've tried so far:

    Disabled the Windows 10 hibernate / fast startup feature
    Tried to downgrade the Intel Management Engine drivers to a 9.xx Version
    Tried multiple versions of Intel Rapid Storage (now uninstalled it)
    Tried multiple Intel Chipset drivers
    Tried to disable every non-windows service to see if it's a software issue.
    Replaced PSU

    I'm done with it Tried to find a solution with Windows and Asus but both keep saying this is not a common issue.

    I would really appreciate some help.

    Cheers, Julian
    Don't know if this is any help but I've been having the same problem for a few days and couldn't sort it out like you using the main switch off button which I wasn't happy about. I've looked at a lot of Google responses until I came to one about CCleaner which I've had for years, this then reminded of its useful Registry Cleaner panel so clicked on "Scan for issues" which showed a long list of things needing fixing none of which meant anything.

    Clicked on "Shut Down" as usual and it switched off in about 4 seconds !! Worth a try if nothing else I think, go for the free version which I use....

    I just recently did a clean install of 10 on my Pavilion x360. Had the issue pop-up again, so I tried the latest IME drivers that HP listed on their website, and it seemed to have fixed the issue.

    The shutdown problem is very common. After several attempts I found the definitive solution. Here is the complete guide:
