Maybe this will be of some help for the NTFS partitions:

That can happen if your / partition fills up. Check that there's free space and then do an upgrade.

exFAT can't do symlinks, no matter which Peppermint you've got. Why did you format them as exFAT?

They should unlock when you close them but maybe you had a crash or terminated the program.

Look in the same folder as your documents. Make sure in the View menu of Nemo "Show hidden files" is ticked. You should see files starting with .~lock. and then the filenames of your docs. If you delete those .~lock. files you should be able to edit the docs again.

What is Sparky APTus, is it something we should be looking into?

If you press Escape during shutdown do you see any clues in text about what's going on?

it will not fit on 4gb usb

Nobody ever claimed it should, I don't think. Most sensible people would be trying to use at least 4GB RAM in this day and age, never mind a system drive.

Throughout all this I was wondering if it was possible to boot peppermint from uefi, but I think my iso was setup for bios.

Of course it's possible but your PC has to be set up to boot via UEFI. Why do you think MBR is "outdated"?

If you're installing on a system that is set up to use the Nouveau driver, then you should first disable it before attempting to install the NVIDIA driver.

I don't think it's normally possible to boot a DVD on a UEFI system. Try a USB stick or see here:

Your graphics card might not be able to handle the monitor's maximum resolution. I don't know if that would prevent it from working altogether.

The network drive is on a Windows Samba server? What's the local IP of that machine?

No, I haven't used Boot Repair. I've reinstalled GRUB from the Peppermint USB. I've never had to purge GRUB and won't be recommending that anyone try it.

You can't extend a partition into space you've occupied with another partition.

If you do move sda5 to the left then you probably will have trouble booting and have to reinstall GRUB from a live USB session.
