    Sony VPCEC2S0E laptop won't shut down fully.

    Hi all, I thought I should start a separate thread for this issue.

    This laptop will not shut down fully...basically when I ask it to shut down, it appears to do everything properly to the point where the screen turns off and the lights turn out....except for one. The power light goes from green to a pulsing orange. It's like it's only putting it to sleep because if I press a key on the keyboard it turn on almost instantly.

    I should say that the person who gave me this laptop said she had this issue when she first bought it and couldn't be bothered to get it fixed (as you do). Also, this happens regardless of whether the battery is in the machine or not, or vice versa with the power cable.

    I was thinking it's an ATK thing but then it did it with Win 7 with the official drivers. BIOS is also up to date. Any thoughts?

    This should help:

    Fast Startup - Turn On or Off in Windows 8

    If not you might want to have a look if there any new drivers for you system and check for a BIOS update.
