Thank you for contacting the Intel community.
The Consumer Infrared (CIR) sensor on the front panel provides features that are designed to comply with Microsoft Consumer Infrared usage models (RC-6). With the RC-6 infrared controller I was able to shutdown this NUC.
Do you have the latest Intel® USB 3.0 Device Driver for Windows 7*?
This part I don’t understand it “Try "shutdown -s" and see if that 'restart' issue still exists.” Are you also having issue when try to restart the system?
Please let me know.
I have ALL the latest drivers as I just installed the OS last week and downloaded the newest drivers. However, I got something similar to this problem: External USB drives disconnecting on Intel NUC D54250WYK
As that thread mentions, it only happens under heavy load. I've found several things to check. I will do that this weekend.
'With the RC-6 infrared controller I was able to shutdown this NUC.'
Thanks! Maybe I can find out what code is being sent and program my cheapie universal remote.

I was unable to get the shutdown command to work on my parents' box. I posted about it here:
I will be testing this weekend.
This thread was just to thank det_bradlee as a few of his posts were VERY helpful in getting my Win7 install done.
I will mark it as 'answered' and post again only if I can fix some issues.
BTW, it's too bad Microsoft has made it impossible to stop Win10 from "phoning home". I like the OS, but prefer to have control over my hardware.
