Example: Pavilion notebook_15 ab030tx
Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)

Hello, problem is when i used my machine for an hour or more...i can't shut it down or hibernate completely. The screen will off but the power button will still be on and you could hear its running. it can be like that all day unless the battery runs down. when i was using windows 8, it was ok. This started after i install windows 10 on it. I thought maybe the OS is not complete but i have change it several time...still I'm facing this problem. This is really worry me. 

Please i need your assistance to fix this. Thank You!!
