I'm now having this problem on two of my machines, XP-SP2.

It's intermittent and inscrutable, but sometimes gets where it fails to turn off more often than it shuts down properly.

Any ideas?

Thanks!

What do you mean "where it fails to turn off "?
Is it sticking at the desktop or when the blue screen appears and says saving your settings? Or will the screen go black and leave the fans and lights on?

Yes, exactly.

Sorry for not being clearer.
