Advanced Formula troubles

I need to do the following calculation: 

((1-((1-AE5)*10))*V14)

but only when:

((1-((1-AE5)*10))*V14)>=0 or <=V14*1.5

If greater than or = to V14*1.5 then =V14*1.5
And if less than or = 0 then =0

Replace CALC with your calculation

=IF(AND(CALC>=0,CALC<=v14*1.5),CALC,IF(CALC<0,0,CALC))

Your last statement is confusing. "And if less than or = 0 then =0"...equal 
to zero is mentioned in the 1st condition..So this should be 'less than' .

I think the following does what you want:

=max(0, min(V14*1.5,(1-(1-AE5)*10)*V14))

Note that it can be simplified to:

=max(0, V14*min(1.5,10*AE5-9))

I discovered that the two formulas are infinitesimally different in some 
cases, due to floating-point computation anomalies.  But in fact, I think the 
second formula is closer to the expected behavior.

Based on your constraints, we expect 1.5*VE14 when AE5>=1.05 (and VE14>0), 
and we expect zero when AE5<=0.9 (or VE14<=0).

Obviously, I meant:  we expect 1.5*V14 when AE5>=1.05 (and V14>0), and we 
expect zero when AE5<=0.9 (or V14<=0).

Trouble shutting down
I am trying to figure out why my computer (XP/SP3) seems to have trouble shutting down from time to time. Several days ago I shut it down. Or thought I did.

Came back to restart it today and at first I thought it had read my mind and started up on its own. Then I realized it had never finished shutting down.
