if you are using a cable/dsl modem I remember reading somewhere that the modem is not releasing so it just sits there same thing with starting up takes forever

this iwll also happen if you have your pagefile set to clear on shutdown,

you can always edit the registry to change the time windows waits at shutdown for tasks to end

just goto Hkey_local_machine/system/controlset001/control

and change the waittokillservicetimeout to a number like 3000-4000

Ah ha...This has happened to me for about nine months. I finally realized that it was Easy Cd Creator that was causing the problem, and for the first time in months, my comp shut down by itself last night.

You need to flash your BIOS, I have the same problem, its with the NTkernel (2000/XP) , it just shutsdown and boots, disable 'Advanced Power Management' and it will shutdown and say "it is safe to turn your computer off"

:D

We need a new computer maties !

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

Notifications don't work, I only found your response by coming back to hunt up some threads, if you want, give me your email address so we can keep in touch easier!

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!
