Installed Win XP Pro/SP3 yesterday without issue & began putting in my usual array of applications. I have ACPI enabled
in the bios & in the Power tab under properties. I am used to APM from my other setups.
Anyway, my problem is...the PC cannot be shut off in the normal method via the Start button. It shows the logoff screens, but then it stops with a "It is now safe to turn off your computer" screen which I have not seen since my Win98 days.
And if I push the Power button, it immediately restarts the PC. Only way to turn it off is using the PSU switch at the "now safe to turn off" screen prompt.
Did some research on the Web & found a suggestion to set a registry value from 0 to 1 under the Power something ( am typing from memory here so don't remember details, only that I did it but it didn't change anything)
Would love to be able to shut down this PC in the normal way.
I searched on this topic, but couldn't find anything that helps with what I am seeing
