Laptop takes too long to shut down? This is a known Windows 10 bug
Microsoft published a post about a new issue that affects Windows 10 version 1803. The Redmond giant confirmed that this bug may slow down the shutdown process.
Microsoft warns that your system may take more than 1 minute to shut down in that situation. According to Microsoft, the shutdown issues are caused due to the implementation of a USB Type-C controller. The delay happens because your system may be busy with other USB devices.
The company confirmed the issue affects all Windows 10 systems that feature a built-in USB Type-C port.
A quick workaround is to unplug the USB Type-C device before attempting to shut down. The company explains on its blog:
A bug in the USB Type-C Connector System Software Interface (UCSI) software implementation in Windows 10, version 1809 can cause a 60 second delay in the system sleep or shutdown process if the power-down happens while the UCSI software is busy handling a new connect or disconnect event on a USB Type-C port.
Microsoft says that the issue does not affect the normal functionality of your system. Moreover, the USB devices should work fine as well.
The devices perform as expected once you reboot your system.
As a quick reminder, Windows 10 version 1803 was hit by file deletion issues right after its release in October last year.
Microsoft blocked the update on PCs running incompatible hardware and software drivers. Despite all its efforts, the company is still dealing with new bugs since then.
Windows 10 users want to know if Microsoft plans to release a fix. However, the tech giant has not revealed any details yet. The next Patch Tuesday falls on July 9, 2019. Most likely, the fix will be available on Patch day.
