+ 0 Votes worked, but new problems footballer62 7 years ago well, I was able to find an option in power management in the bios to make it shut itself of, thanks! But, I now have a new problem. I just reinstalled windows on this pc and now everytime I shutdown the pc, it restarts everything! It was doing this before I changed my bios setting btw. Anyone have a clue how to fix this (besides re-installing xp, I have about 2 hours worth of programs I just re-intalled also).
