Well, it happened again today. I shut my system down, I saw the Windows 98 splash-screen saying Windows was shutting itself down, the next screen that said it is safe to shut-off my PC, then it shut itself off.
The next time I turned it on, during boot-up, Scandisk came on & told me my system wasn't shut down correctly the last time, and it would scan my drives. It scanned them, but did not ask about or go into a surface scan, and when it was done, my system continued to load on its merry little way.
I tried disabling Fast Shutdown. When I did that, when I shut off my PC, I do not see the Windows splash-screen or the 'safe to turn off your PC' screen. My system shows a little hour glass, a blank, black screen, then it shuts off. It is supposed to do that? Upon restarting it, Scandisk does not run.
When I shut-down my PC, these are the programs Task Manager shows are running in the background:
Shut Down Windows
Hplampc (Program for my scanner)
What are Stimon, Csinject, and Rnaap?
