As a working computer tech, my first question to you would have to be....
"How do you shutdown your PC?"

Over the years, I've seen every conceivable shutdown, and many of them left files OPEN on the Hard Drive.
So since Windows 98, I've been using, and sharing with my customers, a Quick Shutdown shortcut, available from an Icon on the desktop. This shutdown routine DOES close all open files, before it actually shuts down the PC.

The syntax of that Quick Shutdown shortcut has changed several times over the years, but the one I use on Windows 7, 8.1 and Win-10, is as follows.

%windir%\System32\shutdown.exe /s /t 1

So, I'd like to suggest, that you copy the blue line above, and paste it into a NEW Desktop shortcut, and always use that shortcut when you want to shut down your PC.

I also strongly encourage you to close any programs that you have open, that may include open files, before you shut down your PC.

Good Luck and Happy Independence Day!

hi and thanks for ur reply

it didn't work, well it works on a normal computer but not with my case + it's not a solution each time I want to shutdown to click on it instead of just hibernating by closing the screen or clicking shutdown

Thanks anyway

WELL, maybe, you've not been around MS Windows long enough, to know that Sleep and Hibernate have been buggy since their inception.
To eliminate eventual problems, I disable Both, when I first install any OS on a PC.

For max safety, there should be ONLY two modes of operation for any PC.... ON and OFF.
Anything else can be problematical.

But suit yourself

PS: Disabling Hibernate, will remove that huge Hiberfill.sys file in your root directory, saving you a lot of HD space.

it seems there's no solution whatsoever

the repair shop said it's a weird and might be caused by a malfunctioning RAM or a BIOS issue
