Instead of pulling the cable, just hold the power button in for about 5 seconds or so.

Go into your bios and make sure you have your ACPI feature enabled. It's during setup that acpi features are installed, so if XP doesn't pick it right up and fix you up, you might need to do another installation to set it right.

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