By default, Windows 8 (Frankenstein the Elder) and Windows
10 (Frankenstein the Younger) do not actually
shutdown or power off. They go into suspend. This
is to make Windows look like it boots quickly. This
makes it a hassle to get to bios to boot off a flash drive.
The do an actual shutdown
--> <Win><R> shutdown /s /f /t 00
--> pull the power cord out for 30 seconds
--> power back up and guess what the f keys bios is
I have see a lot of computer where F12 is the boot option.
One where Esc give a list of things to choose from.
HTH someone else,
You can configure the suspend thing off. It is called
"Fast Boot". Ping me in the subject line if you want
Yesterday it worked.
Today it is not working.
Windows is like that.
Came across a strange one yesterday. I plugged my
Fedora-Xfce-Live-x86_64-25-1.3.iso live DVD into
a Hewlett-Packard p7-1587c and booted up.
After logging in as Live User, I got a big blue
screen. None of the decorations, etc. that you would
expect. But the right click context menu worked and
I was able to do everything I needed (clear the dirty
flag on an NTFS drive and enable Windows Admin accounts).
So you would figure a corrupted disk. BUTTTTTTT, when I
got back to my shop, the drive worked perfectly in
all my other computers.
I use Live USB a lot. I dd them to my flash drives.
And I use them in customer machines.
Problem; I only get two to three shots and something
always goes wrong with the stinkers. I make sure
to fully power off the machines before removing the
flash drives. I think it may just be the drives
and not the software.
Do you guys have a favorite high reliability flash
drive for use with Live USB?
Anyone else had this happen repeatedly to them?
I'm writing an article and I need some new ideas, can you take a look at it and tell me your ideas http://bit.do/dxy5Y

This is just a guess but I can think of a couple of things right off that might contribute. One would be random wrinkles and creases probably prevent the bills from laying as flat to each other as when they were new. Also perhaps abrasion give the bills a "fuzziness" where new bills are frequently described as "crisp" and again they don't lay as perfectly flat to each other. We probably don't notice the difference so much with a couple of bills in our hands but stack 500 together and it becomes more evident.
