In order for the PC to shut completely down you need to have advanced power management functions built into the motheboard.

it is possible that windows setup installed the wrong HAL (hadware abstraction layer)

What is the make and model of this PC? It could be that the hardware is not compatible with Windows XP, which could result in this occuring. There may be a bios update to address it.

I am downloading the Everest as we speak. Will follow up with report as soon as it is finished. When I go to Dev. Mgr. I see Standard PC when I expand the computer icon. I also see the message that Tyger mentioned in his last reply.
I can already tell you that this is your problem...Windows either detected the wrong hardware when it was first setup, or your hardware is not 100 percent windows xp compatible.
There is NO WAY to change this from Standard PC to ACPI Uniprocessor PC (which is what you need it to be for this function to work), without reinstalling windows.
If you tried to force it, which is technically possible, there is a great possibility that you will hose your system and make it completely inoperable and lose all of your date.
If you still wish to load everest, I can possible tell if windows setup messed up in installing the wrong HAL -- hardware abstraction layer.
