If that doesnt work, I had a similar problem before. It can be caused by a persistent program not wanting to shut down. Try logging off, and then pressing shut down.

Hi Ahmad317,

Kindly perform a clean boot following to know if any of the application is preventing the system from shutting down. Check this link below for performing the same:

In addition to the others suggestions, the laptop not waking from sleep, could be a result of drivers not supporting sleep. This is especially true with legacy drivers and hardware.

Hi Ahmad317,

I appreciate the time and effort that you took to troubleshoot the issue. Have you done a clean re-installation of windows on the system.

It could be a hardware related issue on the system as well. Kindly check the link below to run diagnostics on the system:
