I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down.The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down.

The time on your clock keeps changing to the wrong time. Hey I have a few windows 10 pc's joined to my domain which is windows server 2012 r2. If i check the BIOS of each pc the time has changed there also.I have changed the CMOS Battery on both pcs and reset the bios to default.Often, the brilliant guys that make these stuff, forgets that there are idiots (like me) around, that need a lot of help to really understand the principles, and to have this fed by small portions. So, I will make my own Instructions , hopefully in a understandable format for everyone.
First, make sure your clock is set to the correct time zone.
