    There is an error message "behind" Windows that I see for a split second during shutdown. The Windows screen goes off and I see the message box with the large red "X" logo in the upper left corner, but it disappears so quickly when my laptop (ThinkPad T500) screen goes blank that I can't read the message. Is there some way to slow things down or interupt it long enough to read it? Thanks.

    check your event log.

    start > run > eventvwr.msc > empty out both the system and app logs, and reboot and see what has populated there.
