Posted this earlier in the crashes forum, didn't get too many responses, so trying here.
As the title says, I've been having an issue lately where, if the internet is not working, on the computer, it won't shut down, or at least will take a really, really, long time shutting down. I'm currently using a USB wireless device, windows home premium 64 bit, can look up other necessary information if needed.
As a related issue, I've also had trouble reconnecting sometimes. I have been able to do this once or twice, but never remember the steps exactly. It does seem that a lot of the internet control panel, plus the software for the wireless receiver, won't open or run when the connection disappears, although I'm not sure whether this is supposed to work this way and I'm missing the method that is supposed to be used, or whether this itself is a problem.
Thanks for any responses people can offer.
