    CPU Tweaking with windows 8 installed


    unlike windows 7 in windows 8 when i shutdown my PC, the monitor shuts down in 4-5 secs,but my CPU still runs for while(approx. 1 min) dis is very annoying as you see, i have to wait until the whole PC shuts down.if i don't & cut the power from the UPS Battery,the next time i boot into the PC, i don't get a fast start up.
    -i have 160 GB Clover 161HJ ATA Hard disk drive
    -intel dh55pj motherboard
    -intel core i3 540 processor,clocked at 3.06-3.07 GHz
    any help would be appreciated

    Try a bios update for your motherboard?

    Have you tried it without the UPS attached?

    I find my 8 PC shut down is the same as my 7 PC shut down...as far as what you're describing...but then again I don't have a UPS either. There might be a software/firmware upgrade for your UPS for windows 8.
