Currently I have pressed "shut down" minutes ago and my laptop is still on.

Now I will have to awkwardly take out and put back in the battery as there is no other solution to this problem.

It practically requires three hands and I'm probably damaging the battery.

Why can't they just make laptops with "on/off switches" to turn off the connection between the battery and the rest of the computer when you need to hardboot it?

They have a power button. If you hold that for a few seconds the computer will shut off/turn on. Usually if it freezes up let it die then recharge it. That should do the trick of curing that.

a hard shut down is damaging to a computer, if your having issues with shutting down and booting up you should reformat your drives or reimage it. the battery takes 2 hand btw, one switch stays flipped the other requires being held. and one hand must remove the battery.

Noob. They have a power button. And if your computer is so bad that it can't shut down I wouldn't use it to run Paint.net because its graphics would be to high. Get a PC
