Shutdown options .... again strange why it changed, its not BIOS related ... WIN7 had Logoff/Hibernate/Sleep so why does WIN10 not consider it an option ... nothing obvious in Settings either ....

Have a look through these two articles from microsoft's forums, I'm assuming that it probably is the same although they are from last October, but can't test as have not upgrade:

Thanks SW ! Had also done some trawling (& noted the refn in your 1st link to a video driver solving the issue) plus I found an option in BIOS to address WIN8 vs 'Other OS' ...... then WUP installed an update for my NVidia GFX card driver and suddenly I had SLEEP back in the PO menu & huzzah, an option appeared in DISPLAY to set the Screen resolution ... all looking a lot better ..

LOL, yesterday I had message about failed Updates, and had the chance to configure WUP for when it would RESTART after Fix application .... - today it took me an age to find (again) where they'd put Windows Update - not impressed with either its new location (a SETTINGs item in the Start menu), nor its 'look & feel' - quite a retrogade step I feel ... Glad they left the screen for MS Security Essentials aka now DEFENDER the same as before at least !

My PC updated itself yesterday although I had told it i wanted to do it on Saturday morning  ???
I never had Windows 8/8.1 so I was a little concerned about familiarisation but so far it hasn't caused me too much grief.
Family Tree Maker 2014 keeps crashing. It seems to be quite a common problem. I don't suppose Ancestry's I.T. bods had enough time (more than 6 months?) to make sure it would work ::)
I now have to hold down the shift key when I want to shut down.

Now for the hard bit, Windows 10 installed but doesn't work?
