    I have just reformatted and reinstalled XP on an older dell. I updated to SP2 and all of the windows update. Now when i click shutdown on the computer, it just restarts. the computer will do an endless loop of restarting, and will not shutdown unless i hold down the shutdown button. is this a problem with SP2 or is there another cure?

    Check: Display Properties>Screen Saver>Monitor Power>Power>Advanced and make sure your desired options are set.

    BIOS should also have options for power button behaviour.
