    Hello,
    This is the problem all Window 8 users are facing. This problem will resolve when you start using genuine window . Microsoft is lunching Window 8 in the October...
    To get ride of this problem you can press power button in the keyboard for shut down fast . But this is not the permanent solution for this problem..
