Windows 10: Fix Reboot instead of Shutdown

Windows Comments


Short tip because I had to spend more time onto it than I wanted. If your Windows 10 often denies a shutdown and reboot instead, check the Power Management setting of your network cards.

Windows 10 Device Manager

Network adapter Power Management

That’s it, your PC should now stay off if you shut it down. It’s possible this setting is reset after updates, so check if the problem resurfaces.

I have no idea why this feature was introduced. From my understanding that’s what the magic packet is for. So if one of my readers knows something about it, feel free to comment.
