Solution 2 – Use Logitech Options instead of Options+

If your Logitech Peripherals are supported by the original Options Software, you can use that without any issues like an app is preventing you from shutting down or restarting. If your device is not supported or you want to use the latest version for something specific, check out the next solution

Solution 3 – Uninstall Logitech Options+ after customization

The Logitech Options + is not an essential software for the day-to-day working of Logitech peripherals such as keyboards. It only provides options to customize the customizable buttons on keyboards and lets you know the battery level of devices.

You can even select to ‘restart anyway’ or ‘shutdown anyway’ without any problems. Before I found out what was the culprit, I used to do that without any issues.
