It seems that issues are not going to stop appearing in the Windows 10 October 2018 Update(1809). The 1903 predecessor has been hit with a new bug, causing PCs to go through a delay when a shutdown is performed.

Fortunately, the delay in the shutdown is not a permanent issue. It appears when you plug in a USB Type-C controller into PC running October 2018 Update and perform a shutdown without unplugging the controller.

As per the official figure, it will take more than 60 seconds to complete the shutdown process. Irrespective of the device you use, 60 seconds is the threshold, no less than that even if you’re running a high-end PC!

Technically speaking, the blame is on USB Type-C Connector System Software Interface (UCSI) as it, as per Microsoft, keeps itself busy in handling a USB Type-C device when the power down happens(Via Windows Latest).

“A bug in the USB Type-C Connector System Software Interface (UCSI) software implementation in Windows 10, version 1809 can cause a 60 second delay in the system sleep or shutdown process if the power-down happens while the UCSI software is busy handling a new connect or disconnect event on a USB Type-C port,” Microsoft explains.

Microsoft is yet to release a fix for the shutdown issue. However, you can avoid it just by telling your brain to tell you to unplug the Type-C controller before you hit the shutdown button.
