ACPI and Apm features are installed at setup. You need to enable the acpi function of the motherboard in the bios... I'm not sure if XP will pick it up and fix itself or not... it may require a re-installation.

your motherboard and case needs to support ATX powersupply and you may have set some jumper settings on the board, check out your manual for details

Would i have to update the motherboard drivers at all? or manually go into the motherboard and switch some settings?

you need to look in your manual, or go to the web site if you don't have one. If you know the model and make of the board post it here.
If its only a few years old then it almost certianly will.

do what Lonman says also, check the stuffs enbaled in bios

Can you have the computer automatically power down when set up as a "standard pc" rather than ACPI?

Thanks,
Patrick

i have the same problem with my computer. i whipped out my manual and there is a diagram of some power things but i have not clue what they mean. There are jumpers for the following
Power LED
Keylock
Reset Switch
Power Button/suspend
Speaker
HDD LED

Which one of hose would be the right one???

None of the above. Those are the ones that connect up with the case. You'll need to go into your bios and see if ACPI is enabled. Look in your manual again and see if your board it acpi compliant.

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

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!
