Check the software you're running. Try disabling ALL auto-start apps, boot up, then try to shut-down. If that doesn't work, then reenable ACPI and move on =/

i read somewhere that if u reinstall winxp and hold some key(s) down as setup starts, u can install on a "standard pc" rather than an "acpi pc" in which (afaik) u can enable APM in windows. APM is the old style power system before ACPI that allowed the pc (using ATX power) to auto-turn off after shutdown.

Hey EP! All good with me, applying for Microsoft MVP right now, should have done this a while ago.

Notifications don't work, I only found your response by coming back to hunt up some threads, if you want, give me your email address so we can keep in touch easier!

EP, glad to see you come back and tidy up...did want to ask a one day favor, I want to enhance my resume , was hoping you could make me administrator for a day, if so, take me right off since I won't be here to do anything, and don't know the slightest about the board, but it would be nice putting "served administrator osnn", if can do, THANKS

Been running around Quora lately, luv it there!
