Im having a problem with Windows XP shutting down. When i go to shut it down it will shut down then it pops up with a screen telling me it is safe to shutdown my computer now. My problem is i cant find where in XP to tell it to auto shutoff my computer after that screen. When i try to click on the off button on my computer nothing happens and i cant find where in XP to change that.

Thanks

you need to add NT Apm/Legacy support to your sustem. To do this go to control panel, add new hardware, select the following:-

already have the hardware connected,
add new hardware device,
Install the harware manually,
then select NT Apm/Legacy support,
then click next and when done reboot and this should sort it out

If not then msg back.

Open the Power control panel. If there is a tab for APM, go to it and make sure the checkbox is checked.

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 https://tinyurl.com/ycpxl
