Y50 - Zombie laptop, won't shut down

My lenovo Y50 wont shut down. Everytime I shut down it closes all the app flickers off then come right on again. It's been like this for over a week now and the only way to get it to turn off is to alway the battery to die completely.

Re: Y50 - Zombie laptop, won't shut down

Hi funmbi , 


Welcome to the Community Forums. 


Would you have the specific machine model and number located from the sticker? What is the current WIndows version ?


To isolate , try restarting the pc in safe mode. Pc would be running with the basic resources and most drivers and apps are disabled. Try using the Windows shut down option .  Try manually pressing the power button down for 5 seconds until it goes off  . Would that work?


If the issue is due to power settings , you may undo it via system restore to jump back to previous weeks when it was working normally with shutdown.


Update us how it goes.
