    Pulling my hair out here!

    Asus M2N-E Sli M/B, AMD 6000, 2x1G RAM, Albatron 8600GT, Samsung 400G SATA H/D, Vista Premium, LG IDE DVD.

    24 pin power, plus 4 pin power connectors plugged in.

    New build, computer works great, all aspects!

    Windows shuts down fine. After OS shutdown, power LED on M/B still on. Can't get to complete power off. In order to reboot system, have to dissconnect power cord for 10 seconds.

    Have tried adjusting power settings to shutdown, no avail.

    I want to be able to completely power off system, without having to dissconnect power cord or flick power supply switch each time, as switch is hard to reach in computer desk.

    Any help appreciated, thanks

    I put this in your own thread. When you have a problem, start your own thread. The reason for this is that with one problem per thread, it is difficult at best to follow what has/has not been done; with multiple problems, it is impossible.

    As to your problem, modern motherboards are designed that way. There is a small amount of pw applied to the board all of the time. This is done so as to be able to wake on lan, wake with hot keys, etc.

    Read your manual; you may have a pw setting that will stop this however I doubt that you will find one.

    I don't know about everyone else here, but I am not sure of the question. To reboot, you select restart not shut down all power and as crj says, some power always remains in the board to aid with startup...I am really not sure here why you don't want that.
