Re: getting startup and shut down back and can theybeconfigured in Win10
If you could guarantee me that every time a computer begins a shutdown, it always completes, your statement would be correct. It wouldn't be a very pleasant occurrence to shut down a laptop running on batteries and have the shutdown not fully complete, thus continuing to drain the battery. Computers usually shut down but not every time.

It is not always that easy. If you have a laptop that has no fan and runs on a solid state drive, there are no operational sounds from the computer. One would have to know how to create an error that is accompanied by a sound to have anything come from the speakers. The long and short of it is, if you shutdown the computer in the proper fashion, and you have the Power Options set to shutdown the laptop when the lid is closed, then there is nothing to worry about.

You just press buttons on it, if nothing happens, it is shut down. It is same with my android tablet. When I hit shut down or power off I give it 10 or so seconds, hit some buttons, if nothing happens it is shut down.

So here’s a dumb question from a Windows 7 user. If there is no shutdown sound in Windows 10, how can you tell for sure that your computer has shutdown successfully, especially if you have a laptop with no fan or DVD drawer? At least with a desktop, you can usually tell that the fan has stopped running, and the DVD drawer won’t open when you press the eject button, which confirms that the computer has shutdown.
If you have fast startup disabled, you can go to sounds and there you can check the windows startup sound, but you can not get the shutdown sound back, even if you do a registry hack to list the sound it still will not work no matter what sound you assign to it.
