Ok, when I go to shut down my computer and I get my shut down screen, I get three choices.

1. Stand By
2. Shut Down
3. Restart

Well choice #1 really isn't a choice actually because I can't click on it to send it to stand by.

Choice #2 actually doesn't seem to shut down my computer, it restarts it and I have to push the power button on the front of my computer to turn it off.

Choice #3 is the only one that works properly.

How can I fix the computer so that Stand By and Shut Down functions work properly.

Thanks!!!

Check to see if the NT APM / Legacy Interface Node is enabled.
Right click My Computer, Then click Properties>Hardware>Device Manager, Then click view>Show hidden devices.
You will see the NT APM / Legacy Interface Support, Click the + next to it. If the NT APM / Legacy Interface Node is disabled it will have a red X overtop of it. Right click on it then click enable.

tbp,

Thanks for the reply. I did like you said but I don't have the NT APM / Legacy Interface Support anywhere in the manager. Could it be called something else. This is XP Home, not PRo if that makes a difference.

Try this:
Start> Control Panel> Power Options> APM tab and make sure Enable Power Management Support is checked.
also Hibernate tab, make sure Enable Hibernation is checked.
