    One of my friends has just installed xp pro and when they shut down the computer it says it is now safe to turn the computer off. But then it won't let you switch it off! it doesn't do anything when the power button is pressed. the mains switch needs to be turned off! what is the problem here??

    thanks in advance

    I heard this somewhere:

    1. Open the device manager
    2. Show menu > Show hidden devices
    3. Activate "NT Apm/legacy Support"
