    Slow shutdown after upgrading to Windows 10


    Slow shutdown after upgrading to Windows 10 on my T61p

    T61p, T9500, SSD

    Updated Windows 7 Pro 32 to Windows 10 Pro 32 in place. All works well after a couple of
    tweeks. Only tweek I did not like was having to disable "Allow the computer to turn off this
    device to save power" on the 4965AGN WiFi card.

    Boot is good. 30 seconds till Windows 10 up, 40 seconds total for HDD light to go quiet.

    Shutdown is odd. Only takes a couple seconds for desktop to shutdown and the screen to
    go black. It appears to be shutdown but it isn't. LEDs and fan stay on for 77 seconds. HDD
    random flickers throughout then about a 10 second HDD LED before it actually powers down.

    Ran - "sfc /scannow" - Nothing found
    HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\WaitToKillServiceTimeout=1000

    Shutdown from safemode - Fast
    Shutdown from safemode with networking - Fast
    So it appears something is hanging during shutdown.

    How do I go about getting a log of the shutdown processes to determine
    what is hanging during shutdown?

    Hi.
    You might want to try turning off Fast Startup. I've found that there are some things that just don't like that feature. Also, uninstall any unneeded Lenovo bloatware.

    In the end it was AVG. Maybe a rootscan at shutdown? Removed and reinstalled with no fix. Had to switch, now running Avira.

    Thanks for posting your solution. Odd that a reinstall of AVG didn't fix things.

    Please go ahead and mark the thread as "solved" in the upper left. Thanks!
