I just reinstalled Windows. Before, the computer would shut itself off when I shut it down. Now, the "It is now safe..." message shows, and it doesn't power down by itself. I have to hold the power button in for 5 seconds. 5 whole seconds!!! I am a busy man, with things to do and people to see. I don't have time for this!! Actually, I'm just lazy.

Try this first: In Windows Right-click the Desktop; Point to Properties; Click the Screen saver tab; click the lower Settings button; Click the Advanced tab; under the 'when I press the power button on my computer' section use the drop-down arrow to choose "Power off". Click the Apply button; Click the OK button. Restart your computer. If that doesn't work after doing a restart, then powering down, then entering the BIOS and adjusting the power setting is necessary.

To enter the BIOS press F1, F10, Esc or Delete during a restart, depending on the computer. Then use the arrow keys below the Delete key and the Enter key to navigate through the menu and sections to change the settings in the Power section and exit saving changes.
