    You gotta make sure ACPI/APM is enabled in your bios, and then make sure everything is set right under your power options in control panel. then it should shut off for ya :)

    ;) All you have to do is go to control panel,power options,apm tab and check the enable advanced power managment support box and your computer should shutdown automaticly.:)
