    Hey, whenever I shutdown my computer it says " Computer is ready for shutdown " or some shit like that. Now, It use to automatically shutdown but now I have to hold the power button for 5 seconds, does anyone know if i can change that?

    When did this start?!?

    ACPI enabled in the bios for the computer to shut itself down...

    Lonman Bleh!

    During Windows Setup, ACPI is installed only if all components present during Setup support power management. Some components, especially legacy components, do not support power management and can cause erratic behavior with Advanced Power Management (APM), or may prevent ACPI from being installed. Examples of such components are Industry Standard Architecture (ISA) components and an out-of-date BIOS.(From the XP help files.)

    Make sure you have your bios up-to-date and configured correctly.
