Thank you for posting your question in the Microsoft Community.
Sorry to know that you are facing this issue.
Please answer these questions to get more clarity on this issue:
What is the make and model of the computer?
Have you installed all pending Windows Updates and also updated all device drivers?
Did you make any changes to the computer prior to this issue?
This issue might occur due to some inconsistency in the system files.
Let us follow these methods and check if this helps.
You may boot the computer in a clean boot state and check the status. When you start Microsoft Windows, typically there are several programs that start automatically and run in the background that may interfere with the system. These programs may include
antivirus and system utility programs. When you perform a clean startup procedure, you prevent these programs from starting automatically.
Yes, I have the same error here too after the 9926 to 10041 update.
At first it would refuse to sleep or shutdown. Now after the mid KB updates PC will sleep but still no shutdown. At present, Click shutdown anyway and click OK to the error to shutdown, or at first (before mid KBs) had to physically hold down case power
~My guess? is something to do with video or ATI control.~??
Home built MSI G-45, latest bios set for Win 8, i5 Intel processor, SSD drive, AMD R9 270 video, duel monitors.
I also encountered the same problem. On top of that, it appears windows wants to do an update at 1200am every night. As far as I can tell there are no updates available. This has been going on I think since the move over to 10041. Is this related?
