Most digital cameras (NOT ALL but the exceptions are sold as such)
can't be connected to the computer, when they are switched on.
Most digital camera's will shut down, when connected to the USB card. Your Canon G10 is no exception. Most of the time when connecting the USB cable the camera changes in an external memory drive for the computer. Some camera's can be charged via the USB cable. Even when connected to a computer.
Even when I want to connect my DSLR to a computer, to do life view on my computer screen, I have to install special (payed) software, to let it work.
Without the software running, the same DSLR always shuts down and only will download pictures when another program is started.

Automatically Close Programs at Shutdown


When you shut down Windows, if you have any programs running you'll get a message box warning you that a program is still running. You then have to close the program and tell XP again to shut down. It's a fairly pointless warning—better yet would be if XP automatically killed the programs without issuing the warning. That way, you wouldn't get error messages and wouldn't have to close each individual application before shutting down your computer.
To have XP automatically close programs at shutdown, run the Registry Editor and go to HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Control Panel\Desktop. Edit the AutoEndTasks key so that is has a value of 1. If the key doesn't exist, create it as a DWORD value and give it the value of 1. To disable it, either delete the key, or set the value to 0.

see this instruction and proceed according. God bless you

To partially clear computer RAM memory, close some programs that are currently running. In Windows, right-click on any program in the task bar and choose the "Close" option. That will free up the memory that was used by the program. Even if you close every program running on the task bar, a big chunk of memory is taken up by the operating system. The RAM used by the operating system cannot be cleared without shutting down the system.


  • 2 To clear computer RAM memory totally, you have to shut down the system. In Windows, click on the Start Menu and click the "Shut Down" option. Unix and Linux have similar options. When this process is complete, all RAM will be cleared.

    If you are somewhat impatient, turn off the computer by pressing the power button on the computer. This is slightly quicker than the previous step.

  • 4
    If you are very impatient, unplug the power cord of the computer. If it is a laptop, disconnect the battery as well. The computer's RAM memory will be cleared immediately upon the power source being disconnected. This method of shutting down the computer usually causes corruption or some other problem when the operating system is booted up again.

    I was running the program "windon Defender" on it and walked away. When I returned the computer was off and wasn't turn back on.


    The Windows Defender Application is the Antivirus Software which will be pre-installed with the Windows Operating System(Windows Vista, Windows 7).
    The Computer will always Shut down after any Windows Updates or any Operating System Updates are downloaded and installed.
    If you are connected to the Internet and running Windows Defender, the Computer will automatically download the Updates for the Windows Defender Application.
    Once the Updates are downloaded and installed, the Computer will prompt for a shut down.
    The count down will be for 10 seconds.
    After 10 seconds, the Computer will install the downloaded Updates and shut down.
    This might be the reason for the Computer to shut down while using the Windows Defender.

    If the Computer still shuts down randomly, the issue might be due to overheating.
    All the Processors in Notebooks are designed to shut down automatically, if there is any overheating issues.
    The overheating issue mainly occurs due to the malfunction of the Cooling fan.
    If the Computer shuts down frequently, the issue might be due to the above factors.
    It would be better to get the Unit examined at the Service Center.

    How to shut down the Ipod 30 GIg' I was downloading Itunes to my Ipod and my itunes program said that it could not download any Itunes to the Ipod. The Ipod is running and I cannot shut it down


    itunes is downloaded and installed on your computer.
    not onto you ipod.
    once itunes is installed on your computer, open the program and connect your ipod to the computer via usb cable.
    It will mount to itunes and then just learn how to use it and load your music.

    Random shut downs.


    Random shutdowns are normally caused by your computer overheating. The CPU has a protect mechanism that automatically shuts down when it reaches a certain temp so it does not damage the CPU. If you are computer savvy you can download a program called HWinfo or check your BIOS for CPU temperature readings as it runs..otherwise take it to a technician, however, as I always recommend have the technician show you the increased tempature before agreeing to any hardware fixes..if you have any questions let me know. Pls rate this solution.
