Re: laptop shut down slow after update to window 8.1

hi madwind14,


Welcome to the Lenovo Forums.


Can you try the following:

1. Turn off fast startup

2. If same problem, boot the machine in Safe Mode and try to shut the machine down. If the machine shuts down normally, try to perform a clean boot and observe the machine in normal mode.

    - if this works, there are most likely a programs running on the background that's not terminating quickly (which causes the slow shutdown)


In addition, you can try to follow this guide on how to speed up the shutdown process:
