Make your computer’s BIOS settings are well defined, there may be any problem in BIOS settings. Go to BIOS settings and make appropriate changes under Power Management portion. If you aren’t that expert in defining BIOS settings, you can restore your Computer’s BIOS settings to its default settings.

Besides that it can be your computer’s USP problem. If you won’t be able to minimize your problem by BIOS settings then you certainly have to change your computer’s USP. I had same problem, I put my computer’s USP in another one and that computer got same problem. Then I came to know that the actual problem is with USP. I changed it and my PC worked fine.

Hope this helps!

Hi

I understand your problem.   There is a possibility that the switching button is not well placed inside the system unit.  Hence each time you try to switch off the switch does not reach the internal connection on the power supply hence cannot switch off the system.  I will recommend that you try and open up your system unit then realign the switch right back to its position aligning to the position so that when it is pressed, the command is executed.

Alternatively there are some computer models which have a switch right at the back or beside and this switch can assist you in turning off instead of having to unplug the power.

 

Hope this helps.

When you shuts the computer down using soft booth then the chances are the CPU still has power stays on it.

Do the hard booth by pressing and holding on the power button for roughly 10 seconds or little more depends on how long it'll turn off by itself.

In this way, you'll forcing the computer to shutdown the BIOS and it's own electrical source that supply power.

Check the settings by going to Start, Control Panel and Device Manager. Look for tab IEEE-1394 Bus Host Controllers then expand by click on the + sign beside it.

Right click Properties below Power Management and click on "Allow the computer to turn off this device.

This should fix the problem.
