Windows 10: My PC comes back on after I shut it down
My PC comes back on after I shut it down
For the last couple of months, my PC restarts, even when I select Shutdown from the options. I turn it off manually when it does that. Tonight when I came home from being out for dinner, my PC was on, and there was a notification that MS had installed updates. I know with 100% certainty it was off when I left.
Do those bas***** at MS have a way to turn on my PC remotely? Is there something someone has put on my PC to keep me from shutting it off? I have run two anti-virus programs and a spyware program and none of them found anything.
Thoughts from the experts please
Might want to check your network adapter settings in device manager. I've heard of this before... I think yours might have something checked or selected that could keep your computer from shutting down... the exact words escape me right now, but it's something along the lines of "allow this device to keep computer on" I think.
Doesn't appear to be the issue.
Did you ensure that there are no "wake on" settings enabled in BIOS?
The only other thing I can think of, is that your motherboard could be damaged. Hopefully that's not the case.
I have no idea how to look at BIOS or what to look for.
For computer always turning on:
Power Options>Edit plan settings>change advanced powersettings>Sleep> Change settings to disable.
Network &sharing centre>change adapter settings>R click forProperties>configure>Power management, remove tick from allow device towake computer.

the go back button on edge doesn't seem to have the ability to, when you click and hold on it, see many of the previous pages, so you can go back more than one page per click. is that possible?
Since upgrading to Windows 10 Pro, I remain perplexed about this one issue that is plaguing my system:
Almost every shut down is reported in the Windows 10 Reliability Monitor as the computer was not shut down properly. This happens on both shut...
