when i first installed win7 (64bit professional), the shutdown is instantenous ( about 10-20 seconds from when you click 'shutdown' into complete system power = off).
But lately its been taking over 2 or 3 minutes ! The harddrive LED just stays on until 2 or 3 minutes, then system power becomes completely = off.
I've tried all those registry settings (something with the *** wait = 0) and also disabled the pagefile thing. In addition for the test, I have also manually closed lots of stuffs from the task manager (now only 42 process running). However, the shutdown remains the same.
Any tips ?
