Windows 10 installed as an upgrade to W7 on a HP Probook 4520s will not shut down.  It simply returns to the opening screen image.  Suggestions?

Make sure all current drivers have installed. Or do a clean installation of Windows 10.

It is a common problem encountered by users of HP computers running Win 10.

"The problem is with Intel Management Engine Interface (MEI). Downgrade it to a 9.x or a 10.x version. Disable Windows updates. Put it as an exception for updates using Windows 10 Show or Hide Updates so it won't upgrade the program automatically. Re-enable Windows updates (if you prefer to). Restart. Everything should run perfectly now, including its Sleep mode"

Jackie Man, that sounds like an interesting solution.  I solved it a different way by unchecking fast start....or least I think it is solved.  Am hoping that it doesn't pop its head back up and if it does, I will pursue your recommendation.  Thanks for your response.  I'm closing the question as solved.
