    5 Minute Shutdown. Long Time for Sleep. Restart too.


    Hi! Yesterday I tried to go to my BIOS in my ACER v5-452G Windows 8.1 laptop via UEFI Settings. Then afterwards, my laptop takes 5 minutes in shutting down (the power indicator of LED though the screen clears in a minute). Same with Restart and Sleep. However, when I try to restart via settings and that UEFI, it is in my normal speed. Hope you can help me. Thank you.

    I would not blame any programs that I installed on my computer on this. Anyway, as I programmer and also a gamer what I have is WAMP Server, NBA 2K15, Virtual Box, Visual Studio 2013. Things like that.

    PS. I had already refreshed my computer and f*ck, still the same problem.
