So far Im impressed, but my computer wont turn off..?

When I go to start> shut down, windows 7 shuts down and my monitor loses input, but my computer (fans, lights, processor, hdds, ect.) stays on completely. I have to manually hold the power button to shut down. I have checked the power settings and googled this problem but havnt had any luck.

Anyone have any ideas? thanks for any help!

Check your shutdown option in start menu options or in power options.

Shutdown means shutdown?

Well I think it's similar, but I can't get my computer to sleep... Every time I put it to sleep it goes into sleep mode (Fans off, everything shuts down) and then starts back up a few seconds later..

Im clicking "shutdown". There are no options in my power settings that would change this.

hahha, na mine runs flawlessly, not sure whats the go with yours. im thinking manually turning it off is the solution, till we find a PROPER solution, or microsoft fixes this problem in the next release.

Shutdown fails to work

Several times with other OS's, if you had a corrupt DVD Burner program
it would cause the system to "NOT SHUTDOWN" reason it looks for all programs which are running, then it shuts down the program then shutsdown the computer.

Win 7 7100 has several known problems. also there are several "Pirated" versions that are filled with TROJANs and other Virus. which will not allow the system to shutdown, so it can be used as a "BOT"

RECOMMEND YOU TRY THIS:
start --> cmd--> run as admin --> type
shutdown.exe -s -t 000 --> enter and see if this will force the shutdown procedure. It should. then you can click blank space on desktop. create a shortcut... enter the shutdown script.... change the icon to (your preference). now it is simply 2x click away. on your desktop

let me know
