Does anybody know what XP does immediately before turning the power off ?
I get Saving your settings, Closing network connections, Windows is shutting down, followed perhaps one minute later by a reset sent to my Skype B2K box, but nothing more and no more disc activity, and it never switches off.

As I described in my previous thread, which seems to have died, the switch-off works just fine from Safe mode.

You other thread is still alive. You have not responded to a post from the 17th of this month. Macboatmaster posted there today:

As it is now 5 days since the last I was wondering how you went on.
Has it been possible to make any progress.

Closing this topic, please continue in your original thread.
