Re: G570 HDD after shutdown still working few seconds.

normal, it backing up data.
windows saves things you do and then wriites them to disk.
so next time web pages load faster,programs etc.

hibernation can cause this.
large cache.
temp files and so on all this gets saved depending on your settings.

normally the web browser saves data so pages will load next time faster because some data is now on disk.
programs might save data you access alot so when next time they open faster.
plus windows logs things,checks for updates so on all this has to go on disk.

sometimes people want to delete some of this data so that will slow the shutdown as well.

i cant say for certin what it doing no one can it all depends on your settings.

And we're back...
