    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.
