    Sleep instead of Shutdown

    I have a desktop computer running Windows 10. It has been working with no problems.

    Recently it stopped shutting down. When shutdown is selected, it appears to shutdown, the monitor reports the video signal is lost and the lights go off on the PC.

    However it you touch the keyboard it start back up again and goes straight into the desktop.

    I have checked the configuration and the sleep is disabled and the power button appears to be configured correctly.

    It doesn't appear to relate to any processing still running.

    Suggestions appreciated.

    Run this line and see what happens:
    %windir%\System32\shutdown.exe -s -f -t 00
