Shutdown is busy updating waiting for lock

I tried your method of intel management and the computer shut down like normal. My PC does not shut down correctly and I am patient.I use the Windows Shut Down but it seems to only restart.And I had to force shut it by holding down the power button.The laptop would also not go on sleep or restart similarly.A third party utility might reveal whats happening.I'm a big fan of Glary Utilities (Freeware) You can download and try out at When I choose restart everything seems to load as normal. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The screen does go blank but I can hear the hard disk spinning for almost a whole minute and I can see the LED indicator flashing.

This kind of reply is greatly annoying and unhelpful.

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly.

I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down.

After this generally the power led and the fan should be on for a while..

Maybe a couple minutes and then everything should go off. Even after 3hrs after doing the process the fan and led would be on but screen blank.

To these people, Turning off FASTBOOT in the power options will fix their problem. It appears that some updates are changing your settings.
