Schedule shutdown is actually a full shutdown.

Q: Schedule shutdown is actually a full shutdown.

Hi to all Eightforums.
came here after a long time, and very hardly remind my id/pasword. thank God I remind it.
so the problem is, I often let my laptop for downloading something in torrent or idm and set the option "shutdown after download". and I noticed that this schedule shutdown is a full shutdown. not hiber shutdown as windows 8 doing it by default. its confirmed by starting the laptop again and it takes much time at startup. wheres my laptop's normal start time is very short, no more then 20 seconds or less.
so is there any option I should set and this schedule shutdown make hiber (fast) shutdown.
waiting for reply.
best regards.
(sorry for language)

Preferred Solution: Schedule shutdown is actually a full shutdown.

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

A: Schedule shutdown is actually a full shutdown.

It is a default function in the download process and cannot be altered.

I want to ensure that when I shutdown certain critical files have been copied to an alternate location.
I have viewed a great number of tips and tutorials which show how to create a shutdown task.
eg
Shut Down Windows Alt+F4 Window - Change Default Action
Shut Down Computer Shortcut - Create
but fail to see how these are triggered.

Is it just changing the shutdown.exe to do the comparison of the files last written date/time, doing a copy if alternate location file is not the current file date/time?

Hello,

Does anyone know any tips on writing batch file or 3rd party freeware for auto shcedule to shutdown at night and restart at morning?

Because the office building is very often having main power maintenance and all PCs and servers are required to shutdown at odd hours in the night.

What I have done so far was @ECHO OFF shutdown.exe -r -t and it was only shutdown and restart straight away. What I wanted was shutdown at 23:00PM and

restart at 07:30AM next morning. Is it possible?

Thanks....

A:Auto schedule shutdown and restart after 8 hours

You can use the Task Scheduler in Windows (or cron in Linux and Mac OS) to have a command executed at a certain time each day.Simply set the Run: parameter to something like this:shutdown /s /t 15 /c "Shutting Down!" /fThere isn't, to my knowledge, any way to cause the computer to start itself unless such functionality is supported in the BIOS setup. Some computers' BIOS have options to turn the computer on at a certain time, though this option is relatively rare. Another, more common, BIOS option is "Wake on LAN." Wak on LAN allows the computer to be started up by sending it a special signal over it's ethernet connection, though this requires another computer on the LAN to already be up and running from which to send this signal.

I'm trying to figure out how to make the computer shutdown, restart then log into Windows automatically daily. I think I figured out how to make the computer shutdown then restart automatically:

Start > Control Panel > Scheduled Tasks > Add Scheduled Task

I created the following task:

Name: AutoRestart

Run: C:\WINDOWS\system32\shutdown.exe -r -f -t xx (where "-r" shutdowns and restarts the computer; "-f" forces running applications closed; "-t xx" delays the shutdown for xx seconds I think)

- I assume the purpose of "-f xx" is to delay the shutdown to give the computer a chance to close running applications

Start In: C:\WINDOWS\system32

I'm not sure how to make the computer automatically log into a user account of my choice though. Perhaps, the program, TweakUI can perform the automatic login but CNET doesn't recommend it to beginners so I'd like to stay away from the program.

Hi there.

Whenever I shut down my computer fully, the next time it is turned on the screen is a multi-colour splodge. It's like a highly, highly (completely illegible) version of the real screen mixed with a random mess of colour. Sometimes the screen just stays dark and I have to cut the power and try again.

It fixes itself whenever I restart (NOT full shutdown). Restarts are fine and are actually seeming like a fix, but every full shudown produces this problem.
It's a Sony VAIO running Vista.

I am really hoping that I am not the only one experiencing this problem. Also, I did not experience in the CP version. Ok, I have an HP DV7-4273us with the latest bios, which is 1 year old, and 2 Seagate hybrid harddrives.

I have Windows 7 Pro installed on the first one and Win8 RP installed on the second drive. Win8 is set as the default boot OS as well. What happens is that if I restart, no crashes. However, if I fully shutdown and then turn it on, 0xc000000E BSOD device could not be found immediately.

If I press F9, the computer will boot into windows 7. If I press F8, the machine stays at the BSOD. However, if I ctrl-alt-del, the computer will then boot into Windows 8. I think the problem may have something to do with the hybrid boot but I am not sure.

Any help would be appreciated. Oh, and the harddrive have the latest firmware already installed.

Hi I am a fairly capable person, fairly confident on my computer but don't always know all the jargon and abbreviations you guys use, so please bear with me.

I just had to do a clean system install as my computer was running slow and nothing else helped. It is running lovely in general now except that an old symptom from way back that I had solved (and cannot remember how) has returned.
When the computer powers down to save energy (if I walk away) usually I click the mouse and it wakes, but now it won't wake and the fans come on fully and they just don't stop until I press the power button to shut it down. Then when I start it up again it acts normal, no error message etc. Today it also seemed to shut itself down when I went out for a while and had left it on a dell diagnostic thing on the dell support website (that bore no fruit, didn't seem to do anything).

I wish for the life of me that I could remember what 'fixed' this before but it was a few years ago and being a mother of a small child I only have half a brain for remembering these things.

ETA it regularly now shuts itself down when left to sleep for a while, never had that before?

I really hope someone can help?

Hi.I have HP Pavillion 500-321 desktop, and I was wondering if it's possible to configure it so that I can turn the computer on remotely. I have succesfully configured it to wake it up from hibernation from my phone using wake on lan, and according to what I've gathered from some web searches this option (turning the PC on from a shutdown state) is possible in some MB.Just to clearify, I don't want to use wake on lan to wake it up from sleep or hibernation, I've already done that, I want to turn it on after it has been shutdown.I didn't find anything online that would tell me if this PC supports that option, so I'm asking here.Thanks in advance for your help.

WoL works when I shut the computer down but not from sleep or hibernate.

This guy seems to be in a similar situation: Phil Pendlebury – Windows 8 – Wake Over LAN – It Works! – It but he was able to make it work from hibernate.

I would be OK with just using Hibernate if it was working but the MS KB article on WoL says that it is supported in S3 sleep: Wake-on-LAN behavior in Windows 8

Any ideas? Thanks!

A:WoL works from full shutdown but not sleep or hibernate

I am having the same issue. WOL only working from full shut down but not sleep or hibernate.

If you manage to fix it I'd love to know.

Quoting from an article by MS themselves.
Wake-on-LAN behavior in Windows 8





Windows 8: In Windows 8, the default shutdown behavior puts the system into hybrid shutdown (S4) and all devices are put into D3. Remote Wake-On-LAN from hybrid shutdown (S4) or classic shutdown (S5) is unsupported. Network adapters are explicitly not armed for Wake-On-LAN in both the classic shutdown (S5) and hybrid shutdown (S4) cases because users expect zero power consumption and battery drain in the shutdown state. This behavior removes the possibility of spurious wakes when explicit shutdown was requested. As a result, Wake-On-LAN is only supported from sleep (S3) or hibernate (S4) in Windows 8.



So according to them WOL isn't supposed to work from shutdown but only sleep or hibernate. I don't really care for wake from shutdown, I just want wake from sleep to work

We have a Lenovo T440s laptop that had a failing drive. We manage to clone the systems partition and manage to repair a where after the clone, the MBR was corrupted and needed to be repaired using the Windows 7 DVD.

Everything else seems fine and we ran chkdsk to make sure their no errors (it repaired a few using the DVD in order to get it to boot and then ran fixmbr to repair the boot records).

However the only issue we are facing is everytime we do a proper shutdown or reboot, the machine will boot up saying that windows has not properly shutdown and to select "start windows normally". Any ideas what can cause this issue and what can we
do to fix it.

I am unsure if maybe the corruption caused this (as the recovery partition and the MBR partition were both lost). I reformatted the recoveyr partition into a NTFS drive since I couldn't recovery that partition by itself.

I dont have access to that laptop at the moment as the user took it on vacation till next week but was looking into inputs as to what I can do to resolve this.

I also checked the system logs and it shows "windows was shutdown uncleanly" and such but we did shut it down using the normal windows shutdown button and restart button, both of which cause this error.

We're currently running into an issue with an older Yoga ThinkPad model 20C0. Specifically when these devices were upgraded to Windows 10, they've encountered issues sporatically when users would shutdown or sleep the device. The system's screen will go black, but the LED power indicator on the palm rest "ThinkPad" sticker and atop the laptop itself. This behavior continues until the battery is fully drained. Here is what I've gathered so far. Early false positives led us to believe the Intel Management software was at issue, but a colleague eventually found that if Chrome and/or Firefox were running at the time sleep was initiated, the problem would be triggered. The behavior is inconsistent regardless of which driver is installed for Intel MEI or Intel HD Graphics. Currently using the following driver versions: Intel MEI: 11.0.0.1157(Lenovo's latest version is 9.5.15.1730) and Intel HD Graphics is Lenovo's current version 20.19.15.4416. Windows 10 1703 Enterprise OS Build # 15063.540. Anyone else encounter this issue? I know it is something plaguing Windows 10 users accross multiple hardware vendors and the only things that seem consistent is Windows 10 and Intel Gfx thus far. Any assistance in this matter would be greatly appreciated! JH

One of the BSODs had a bugcheck = 0x124 = WHEA = Windows Hardware Error Architecture - potential hardware failure

Info on 0x124 --> http://www.sevenforums.com/crash-loc...-what-try.html

2. Remove Daemon Tools/ Alcohol 120. A driver common to both sptd.sys is known to cause BSODs.

3. Update your ESET installation to v4.2.64.12 --> http://www.eset.com/download

You need device driver updates. Alienware Support sends me to Dell Support -

4. Update all device drivers - chipset (NVIDIA & Ricoh), audio, network. DO NOT download the NVIDIA Video driver from Dell - go to NVIDIA Support per step #1 above.

Hi, My apologies for asking something which has been asked and answered in many variations, but none of which has helped much.

I have three Win7 Home Premium x64 PCs called BoyToy (my main PC), Salsa, and Polka, all of which are wired to a D-Link DIR-655 router. I want to wake and shutdown Salsa and Polka from BoyToy using Aquila?s WakeOnLan utility (which can also control non-Windows PCs) or something similar.

After enabling the BIOS and Win7 settings, I?m able to ?Wake On LAN? both computers from BoyToy (yeah!) but I?m stuck on the Shutdown side?and I?ve tried many different combinations of utilities and settings.

Most recently, I?ve run Aquila?s Listener (part of their WOL utility) on Salsa with its Win7 firewall turned off and no AV running. Listener detects WOL messages sent from BoyToy (not surprising since WOL works) but it doesn?t detect Shutdown messages. From BoyToy, I?ve sent the shutdown message to different router addresses (255.255.255.255, 0.0.0.0, 192.168.1.255, and Salsa?s address) and the results are always the same: WOL detected; shutdown not.

I?m stuck because I don?t even understand how Shutdown is supposed to work in Win7. I?ve found lots of WOL documentation but not for Shutdown. I assume it?s totally different than WOL since the computer to be shutdown is awake so it has an IP address, the Shutdown message contains timer info, warning text, etc.

A:SLOW Boot and Shutdown after forced Shutdown during Windows 7 Upgrade

Yeah. I have been using the Software performance toolkit from windows. Basicly if you know about windows xp, xp had a program called bootvis that rearranged the bootfiles and such for faster boot times, and bootvis is in windows 7, but you need another program to try to use it (i believe).

Even though the BSOD doesn't show up every time, I am getting a minidump each time it restarts with the KERNEL_SECURITY_CHECK_FAILURE error. I've included the two most recent minidumps for analysis if it helps solve the problem.

Minidump 1: http://speedy.sh/WM23P/092014-21796-01.dmp
Minidump 2: http://speedy.sh/4UXvm/092014-24046-01.dmp
 
Where do I go from here?
Much obliged for your help,

A:Boot & shutdown issues. PC boots normally only after system restore. Cannot shutdown normally.

I would start with

a. Hard drive diagnostic, long test.

b. Followed by chkdsk /r if no issues during diagnostic.

c. Followed by defrag if no issues with first two steps.

<<Partition 1 - C:\ - OS - size approx 19Gb. ~ 16GB free>>

Is that correct as stated? Seems somewhat anomalous to me.

We have a lenovo t440s laptop that had a failed harddrive. We manage to clone the drive but because of how bad the failure was, part of the mbr partition and the lenovo recovery partition was lost.
 
i manage to repair the mbr partition by using a Windows 7 DVD and using fixmbr, fixboot and rebuildbcd command from the recovery console to get the machine up and running.
 
We didn't see any other issue however whenever we shutdown the laptop or do a reboot for windows, it will say that windows did not shutdown properly  when it boots back up and to select start windows normally or repair mode.
 
The other strange issue I notice was that when using the windows 7 dvd repair option, it does not detect the OS installed when you get the GUI box. It does detect it when i did the rebuiltBCD option even thought it corrupted boot the second time I ran the command and to again reboot into the dvd and rerun it a third time allowing me to get into the machine.
 
Any ideas how I can resolve the windows did not shutdown properly error.
 
I could reinstall windows but since the machine came with Windows 8 media with downgrade to windows 7, I dont want to use a genuine dvd to reinstall it since i am not sure if it will even work.
 
People told me to just upgrade to Windows 10 but i cannot do that at the moment for this client of ours that has this issue.

I've browsed through a few threads on here, and because of that, I was able to figure out how to disable fast startup (which allows me to listen to the startup sound), but also replace it as well since I believe by default, there is no startup sound in Windows 10.

However, this isn't the same with the shutdown as every time I turn off my PC or restart my PC, there is no sound that plays.

I've customized both the startup (which works) and shutdown (which does not work) as well and enabled the Logon and Logoff sounds in the Sounds menu as well. I used the same sound for Logoff and Logon as well. For Exit Windows as well, I used the shutdown sound and I also checked Play Windows Startup sound too.

Anyone know how I can change this so I CAN hear it when I restart or turn off my PC? Minor customization options like this is what made Windows 7 and below so great, and to see this absent or hidden from Windows 10 and Windows 8.1 is rather disappointing as I feel that I am not able to customize my own computer, possibly at least without some form of a workaround.

Thank you.

EDIT: 11/21 The latest thing it says is windows did not shut down successfully because the system stopped responding. Anyone?
After PC is left unattended more than an hour or so it gets a black screen with no error messages, but the CPU and fans are powered up. I must power off and cold start. Usually it takes 3 or 4 tries to get a successful boot, and when I do I get a message that says windows did not shutdown successfully.

The windows error log says the problem is shut down unexpectedly, event name bluescreen, OS version 6.1.7601.2.1.768.3 Locale ID 1033. (Windows Home Premium)

I have all power, sleep, and hibernate options set to never. I have run the memory test and it is OK. I have also run a windows integrity scan which said no corruptions in windows integrity.

I'd really appreciate a hand with this issue. Thanks.

Edit: Although at the top of the post I said "after an hour or so" that is not always so. A more accurate description would be after leaving the PC unattended for several hours.

Hi all,

I've downloaded the Windows SDK to create an trace file to pinpoint what is holding up my laptop shutdown.

Unfortunately I'm having trouble reading the results so would appreciate anyone whom has experience with the software help me identify what is holding up shutdown.

Shutdown now takes 30secs on an i7 sony laptop ssd 8gb ram, it use to take only around 5 seconds.
It would seem there is only activity at the start and end of the shutdown process and a dead spot with little cpu activity for about 20 seconds.

Only thing I can see is the process lifetime seems to be extended for a handful of processes.

The file is HUGE so i'll just upload some screenshots of the results.
Any help would be appreciated.

Thanks.

New laptop lenovo ideapad from january i run a lot of programs for engineering on it works great. But it seems after a while online listening to music and browsing flash/shockwave whatever begins to crash if i exit out of chrome i cannot re open but i can open ie. running mcafee enterprise and antivius and have a malware detection program i've had similar setups in the past and never had much of a problem or at least anything i couldn't handle myself. so when i go to restart after these problems it sits at the shutdown screen and the swirl timer keeps swirling until i get pissed and force shutdown holding the button. is this a problem with win 7 os or is there something still running in the backround that i can't seem to find?

This is weird. I have to go through the shutdown procedure twice, i.e., Start/Shut Down/Shut Down and click Ok, then Start/Shut Down/Shut Down and click Ok again. It will then shutdown properly. The same thing happens when I try to "Restart."

After doing the first shutdown sequence, everything is normal. I can open programs, surf the web, etc. It's as if I never tried to shut it down at all. Only after the second shutdown procedure will it shutdown fully. One note: When I go through the first shutdown sequence, my taskbar pops up and the desktop is darkened. After clicking Ok, the taskbar autohides and my desktop returns to its normal color.

I have only had this problem for the last month or two. Before that, all was fine. It's not critical since I can shut it down. It's just annoying to have to do it twice.

I have Windows 2000 Pro, SP4, build 5.00.2195. Any ideas/suggestions?
 

A:Solved: I have to shutdown Win2000 Pro twice to shutdown computer

I have had this happen a couple of times in the three+ years I've used W2K, and I figured I hadn't let the thing work long enough to shut down (due to my impatience). W2K saves changes, analyzes configurations, etc, etc during both start-up and shut-down.

Sooo , I waited a couple of times, and sure enough, it shut down after 10-15 minutes.

Then, I waited once, including going to bed, and it was still up in the morning.

What is it? I don't know. I do know that after I did a reinstall about 3 months ago, I have yet to experience it again.

(Not saying that I won't).

Hi

I have seen many posts on various forums describing similar problems to mine, but no solution. Problem is as follows:

Running Windows Home Premium on HP DX7400 core 2 duo, 2gb memory, Nvidia 8400GS Video Card.

Everything runs perfectly, until I shut down.

I click shutdown and system starts to shut down, BSOD and minidump, then automatically reboots and says it has recovered from an unexpected shutdown.

If I ask it to find a solution it sends me off to some Broadcom Bluetooth driver problem and I have no Bluetooth installed. I did have but its uninstalled with Revo.

I have checked the disks, the memory, updated all Vista Updates and Nvidia drivers, Broadcom Ethernet driver.

Nothing seems to fix the problem. Its totally random. Sometimes it shuts down fine and sometimes not. I had XP on this PC initially and it was fine,

On many of the posts it seems to be only Vista Home Premium users who have this problem, I never see it with Ultimate or Basic Users. I also seems to affect many brands and configs, so it seesm to be a Home Premium problem.

Does anyone know of a fix?

Hi Guys,
I've done a fair amount of looking around for a way to do this with no luck. Basically we have a 'timecard' type software system at the business that I work at that keeps track of when people are working. They do this by clocking in and out using
an interfaced deployed onto user computers. The issue is when people go home without clocking out. As a matter of course most people shut down their computers before they leave for the day. I was thinking if you could display a message asking people if they
had clocked out, then cancel the shutdown if they answer 'no'
After some searching I only really found one result that didn't want to use 3rd party software or required you to create a dummy 'shutdown' button on your desktop:

End If

Hello! I have recently had an issue with my computer not fully shutting down!

When I press on the windows icon and the press SHUTDOWN it goes to shutdown and looks like it is working but then as the monitor goes off and things get quieter, the computer still stays on!

The computer has been running great but I am very close to trying a new reformat (although Intel's driver website seems to be having issues when I go to download so this might have to wait).

I also just replaced my power supply recently, a friend came over who runs a pc shop and he sad it is installed right (he even redid it just to make sure). The PSU was like 6 years old, it would not start up before so thats why we got anew psu and put it in and its worked since (although with this not 100% shutting down)

Also I got a new motherboard and CPU put in not long ago. I have a feeling there could be a bios update I should use? I know its still an early default bios.
