  1. That's what I thought too. I have uninstalled logmein already - made no difference. My quest continues..
  2. Thanks. Do you see anything wrong with my shutdown performance? Do you know of any tools or switches which allows logging up until the point of failure? summary_shutdown.xml
  3. I installed the latest from windows update and it seems to have made chrome render webpages much slower. Maybe I will try to remove the old drivers in their entirety. However I upgraded to 8.1 long before these issues started happening. They only occurred after I have boot issues.
  4. It's possible, but restart is able to shut the computer down. It can also be shut down in certain situations from the BIOS or boot screen I think. I will reinstall the SATA drivers and try again
  5. Hi All I have scoured the internet to find a fix to my issue but unfortunately I cannot. I have posted to several communities I am a part of and none have been able to provide results. I have a Lenovo Yoga 13 netbook running Windows 8. History: I recently had some BCD issues where I accidentally altered my boot entries. However I fixed that and it now boots fine. I confirmed with another user from the Lenovo support forums that our boot entries are the same if not similar. In addition I have rebuilt them using bootrec and bootsect. After I fixed the BCD issue my PC has had issues shutting down, hibernating and sleeping. I'm not sure if it's related to the BCD issue, but it may be. Fixing the BCD involved a lot of booting from disks and is generally a bit messy. However, it can restart fine. It can also resume from a hibernated session, however it still hangs going into hibernation. Behaviour: Shutting down results in it seemingly exiting the programs (I know because sometimes it will say a certain program is stopping it from shutting down, do you want to force shut down), then it turns the screen off. However the fan still runs and the power light is still on. Referring to MagicAndre's guide, I think it is at the kernelshutdown stage Sleep/Hibernate is the same. What I've tried: I've looked at the recommended methods Turn off fast startTurn off dynamictickI've also rebuilt the BCD using bootrec and bootsect.I've tried startup repair from Windows Recovery, but that says it cannot find winload.efi (which seems to indicate to me that there are still BCD related issues).I've reset the BIOS.I've reinstalled drivers and run windows updateI've run it in safe mode with services and programs disabled. shutdown /s /f /t 0 doesnt workRemoved all peripheralsAnd others that've slipped from memory.Finally, I found the trace method today. I ran the shutdown trace but that simulated a restart so it ran smoothly. If I try to trace sleep or hibernate it crashes and the trace produces nothing. I've posted a question in that thread asking for help for that specific issue already. However my shutdown trace is attached in case anyone can glean anything from it. Yes I did try it with logmein disabled but that didnt work either! I've done my research, i've wracked my brain but nothing! Really hope someone is able to help. Appreciate your time to read this (long) post. Thank you!! summary_shutdown.xml
  6. I'm trying to use this trace to figure out why my PC cannot shut down or sleep or hibernate. It shuts the applications and the screen off but it will not shut the fans or the power button. _However_ it does reboot. Unfortunately the shutdown trace is essentially a reboot so that works flawlessly. The standby trace reproduces the issue, which results in me needing to hard reset by holding down the power button. Unfortunately when I restart the ETL files are empty.. Any ideas on how I can overcome this?
