Win2000Pro Auto shut off


Overclocked Like A Mother
Hi Guys,

I have some one's machine here. One of the things they asked me to try to fix is how it could shut itself off completely, instead of "hanging" on the "It is now safe......" Screen. I checked the power options, but there is no checkoff for that. Where can I look.

Thanks in advance.

Under Power Options, find the APM tab and make sure that the checkbox is checked. If that checkbox is not avalible, make sure that power management is enabled in the BIOS. If that checkbox still isnt there, you're either running Windows 2000 Server (which has no power management, therefore no auto-shutoff ability) or have some old BIOS that doesnt like Windows 2000.

Thanks Guys,

It is an older machine that had Windows 98 in it before. Power Management is enabled in the BIOS and that checkoff is still no there.
Hopefully, you can find me that file to delete. Thanks.

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
