Hi, When I shutdown my computer it shutdowns normally, But then instead of powering down and turing itself off, It says 'It is now Safe to turn off computer.'
Can anyone please tell me how to get the computer to automatically power down after shutdown, rather than me pressing the button.
Thanks.

P.s thanks for quick replies

you computer is not set up correctly with ACPI, follow theses steps (works on XP)


. Open Control Panel, and then double-click System.
2. Click the Hardware tab, and then click Device Manager.
3. On the View menu, click Show Hidden Devices.
4. Expand Non-Plug and Play Drivers.
5. Do either of the following:

In the NT APM/Legacy Support branch of the device tree, you will see the item NT Apm/Legacy Interface Node. It will show a red X to indicate that it is disabled.

Right-click NT Apm/Legacy Interface Node, and then click Enable.

After you follow these steps, Windows will shut down correctly.
