Have a look at the official site of Dell for Inspiron 3542 drivers, you will find the aforementioned update at the Chapter called "Firmware":
Hi I had the same issue in my Dell laptop after upgrading to win 10. I called the support line and followed lot of trouble shooting and nothing changed. I also tried many online steps and still nothing got fixed. At last one tech from escalation team guided me to update the firmware of the laptop and BIOS to the latest version. I did that and now the laptop is working fine. It is shutting down properly when I say it to shut down.
Updated to Windows 10 Anniversary Update (August 2016) and it re-checked the option to "Allow the computer to turn off this device to save power". The problem returned until I followed your advice and unchecked the option again!
Thanks for finding this solution!!

Dell's final solution to the problem in question is the following update:
This update solved my insomnia problem to a 3542 dell inspiron laptop running windows 10 64-bit.
In order to be sure i made a clean reinstall of win 10 and after applying the aforementioned update i got rid of the insomnia issue permanently.
Hi, I had almost similar problem in my dell inspiron i3 laptop. Call dell support and ask them to upgrade the firmware which fixed that problem in my laptop. It took very long for fixing this issue and also I spent several calls and escalations to get this solution.
