    If your computer does not turn off the power when doing a shutdown,
    you may need to edit the registry.

    Start Regedit
    Go to HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Control Panel\Desktop
    Edit the key PowerOffActive and give it a value of 1
    You can do the same in HKEY_USERS\.DEFAULT\Control Panel\Desktop
