    From past few days i am facing very peculiar problem. Whenever i hibernate my laptop, the screen goes black and it wont turn off completely even after hours. I have to manually turn it off by pressing power key for few second. I have tried restarting but the problem resurface on hibernation. Whats interesting is the process of saving the hibernation files seems to get completed properly because whenever i turn on the laptop next time it resumes properly.

    Any way i can find out whats hampering the windows to turn off?

    Using Windows 10 Pro
    Dell Inspiron 3542.

    I've experienced the same problem on my Acer V3-571g. As far as I know, this is caused by the hybrid shutdown feature built since Windows 8. It's a function that puts the Windows kernel into hibernate mode so that the next time you start your computer, the system boots faster, but could cause the computer unable to shutdown. You can disable this feature at the Power Setting part. The function your looking to disable is called "fast start up". Hope this would help.

    Well the problem returned after few hours. Now it makes me clueless.
    Any steps that i can perform so that it do not return?
    With this problem i am getting problem with 3 finger gesture as well. 3 finger up triggers cortana, 3 finger down trigger setting, 3 finger right or left moves pages back and forward in the browser.

    Both these issues remain fixed for few hours after sfc /scannow and Dism restore health but thats temporary.
