i am using windows xp pro, few months it can auto turn off the comp when i click shut down. now it can only shut down!

I know that there is a key in registry can do it. ( I forgot where already).

FrenzyD - Open up 'regedit' and navigate to the following key
Code:
[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\Winlogon]
then edit the Key "PowerdownAfterShutdown" from 0 to 1

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
