THANKS

THANKS for the solution, it works. Just one more thing. If i shutdown the computer I get the message that I can shutdown the computer, but I want to shutdown automaticly. And i don't want to push the power button to shutdown the computer. Do anyone know how to fix that.

Thanks.

since you have SP1 installed you should be able to use the "shutdown.exe" program included with windows to shutdown w/o having to hit the power button.
just make a shortcut with the target as "shutdown -f -s -t 00" w/o the quotes where
-f = force all programs to close
-s = shutdown (use -r for restart)
-t 00 = time in seconds to wait

- Go to the Device Manager.
- Show menu > Show hidden devices
- Activate NT Apm/legacy Support

Never tried it, heard it works. Should do the shutdown properly.
