Good grief Charlie Brown
I think what GoNz0 is trying to say is this>

* Go to Control Panel, then go to Power Options.
* Click on the APM tab, then check the "Enable Advanced Power Management support."
* Shut down your PC.

It should now successfully complete the Shut Down process.

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
