When I physically close my laptop computer, Windows goes into hibernation, which is a good thing since it saves battery power.
However, this also happens if I close the laptop shortly AFTER ordering it to shut down. The shutdown is interrupted and it goes into hibernation mode. When I open the laptop again, it resumes from hibernation and then immediately *proceeds to shutdown*. This is annoying! I want to close my laptop when I am done working, and I don't want to have to wait for it to shut down to be able to do it.
Once a system shutdown has been ordered, disable the service that puts the system into hibernation when the laptop is being physically closed.
