    i installed xp on a puter, when i shut it down instead of xp turning tuning off the puter, the puter says "it is now safe to turn your computer off" and i have to turn the puter off manualy.

    i want xp to turn off the puter automatically. is it somting i have to change in the bios???

    RESOLUTION
    To solve this problem, follow these steps:
    Step 1: Enable Advanced Power Management support
    1. Click Start, click Control Panel, and then double-click Power Options.

    Note If you are using Windows XP, click Switch to Classic View in Control Panel to more easily follow these steps.
    2. Click the APM tab.

    Note If you are using multiple monitors, the APM tab may not be available.
    3. Select Enable Advanced Power Management Support, and then click OK.
    Step 2: Confirm that the computer's CMOS/BIOS settings are correct

    also

    Open regedit.exe

    Browse to this key-

    [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\Winlogon]


    Make sure the following value is set to 1

    "PowerdownAfterShutdown"="1"
