    I have a situation with a Compaq Presario desktop. I have enabbled APM but when the computer goes to shut down, it gets the screen that says Windows is shutting down.... and then the computer locks up, but I can hear the hard drive stop spinning, like the computer is actually shutting down, but instead I have to hold the power button for 10 seconds before it actually shuts down. I tried clearing the paging file at shutdown, but that didn't do it. Does anyone have any idea whats going on and how to fix it? Thanks much!

    This Worked for me, go to device manager-click view-show hidden devices- you will then see NT APM/LEGACY SUPPORT-Right click choose enable it. Let me know if this works for you

    That was already enabbled. :( Anything else?
