Shut Down Help

Shut down Help!!

My sisters computer gives me the screen that it is now safe to shut down the computer. I have enabled the APM and now it just restarts instead of shutting down. How can I fix this so that the computer shuts all the way down without having to turn it off by the switch?

Well I read all of that and there is nothing in there that helped. I also reformatted it for her and that didnt even help. Its an old Compaq 380mhz K6-2 if that helps any.

for now, create a shortcut with this target;

C:\WINDOWS\system32\tsshutdn.exe 0 /DELAY:0 /POWERDOWN

leave it on your desktop

if you want, create a keyboard shortcut to the powerdown by right clicking the shortcut after you create it, bring focus to the box that says "shortcut", and use an f key you don't use.

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
