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.

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
