    Windows 8.1 shutdown: hangs after disconnecting monitor


    As stated in the title whenever I attempt to shut down my PC, it hangs after disconnecting the monitor.
    The power button shows the computer is still on.

    Is there anything I can do to make it shut down properly?

    Wait for it to shut down first, then unplug the monitor.
