    Yesterday morning I changed some settings for the Power Profile as someone talked about on his ICQ home page, don't know what his name was but I was trying to help the computer from freezing up so much. Anyhow the problem is that now when I shutdown the computer, the computer won't turn off the processing unit or tower like it used to do. It just says the following message: It is now safe to turn off your computer. How do I fix it back so it will work like it used to do? Thanks for your help!

    Regards,
    Jeff

    This is a good site for step by step troubleshooting of ShutDown Problems. http://aumha.org/win4/a/shutdown.htm

    Start with Step #1 and work your way through to Step #15 till you fix it.

    Let us know if this helps.

    Yeah that's a really good site! A lot of good info there. I found this on there and thought it was funny :D

    "TweakUI has a box to show Control Panel on Start Menu | Settings. If you uncheck this box, it removes the Control Panel entry.

    Unfortunately, this removes all routes to the Control Panel and its applets. Since TweakUI is on the Control Panel, you can’t use the same utility to get it back!"

    DOH! :eek: :p
