    Hi Guys,

    I am getting the manual shutoff screen when I try to shutdown my machine. Can some one direct me where to find checkoff for the auto shutoff. Maybe a reg edit if need be.

    Thanks in advance.

    Let us know how it goes.

    Just got back from NYC this evening. Don't feel like sleeping just yet. [​IMG]
    Good to see it sorted out.

    I guess it wasn't your case (i didn't read the whole link) but the "It's now..." screen is often a sign that your PC is no longer using ACPI power management, but is set as a standard PC. The good thing about standard PC is that you can manually assign IRQ's.
