My system's been running perfectly for about a month, and still is, except for some reason, today, it hangs a second before it would shut down. Instead of it fully shutting, power continues to be provided to the fans, drives, keyboard, mouse and monitor. I then have to hold down the power button for five seconds in order for it to fully shut down. Anyone know whats going on?
