Best Answer

Your vechile is equipped with 'Senteniel Lighting' which means, after you shut your vehicle off, the lights will remain on, for the duration you have it set for. If your lights fail to shut off, even with senteniel disabled i would have the switch, or the headlight relay examined.

Your PC does not shut down when turned off?

Specifying the Operating System would help a lot, but I can give you a generic break down of a typical Windows machine which is the safest guess. If it is exiting the operating system, going to a blank screen and not shutting off it could be a faulty Power Supply(PSU). If your operating system is still visible while shutting down and not shutting off, you can have a background program running that is causing a conflict or is malfunctioning. You may want to view your Event Viewer or when shutting down wait for an error message to tell you which program is having an issue when shutting off. This will allow you to disable to application causing the delay.

Why are headlights on cars usually concave in shape?

Concave-shaped headlights are able to scatter and disperse the light rays produced by the bulb inside, making the light more noticeable from a distance as it can travel further, which is exactly the function of a headlight. Convex-shaped headlights, on the other hand, converge the light rays produced, causing it to travel only a very short distance and does not serve the purpose.

Headlights may use an auto-resetting breaker which is doing just that--however there may be a short in system that is causing breaker to "trip" Isolate one-at-a-time to try to determine where problem is. Try to get a wiring diagram, and then check the grounds for the headlights. You can also try replacing the fuse for the headlights, perhaps the fuse isn't seated properly for whatever reason.
