    i am using windows xp pro, few months it can auto turn off the comp when i click shut down. now it can only shut down!

    I know that there is a key in registry can do it. ( I forgot where already).

    i dont get your question? but a registry way of shuting down would be

    in run "shutdown -s -t "number of seconds"

    hope it helps

    FrenzyD - Open up 'regedit' and navigate to the following key
    Code:
    [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\Winlogon]
    then edit the Key "PowerdownAfterShutdown" from 0 to 1
