Hi.
Previously, I had Win98 on my PC. When I went to Shut Down, the power turned off automatically.
I have recently installed WinXP HE and now when I shut down, Windows exits and I get the message "It is now safe to turn off your computer".
I then have to either switch the machine off at the back, or hold in the reset button until it powers down.

Why does this happen with XP?
How can I revert to the proper power down?

Thanks

Go into the System Device Manager - Select "View" and select "Show hidden Devices". Under NT APM/Legacy Support, you have to enable the Legacy Interface Mode. To enable it, right click on it and click Options.
