Getting Win 2K to turn off the machine

By ssolomon ·
I have recently upgraded (read: reformat/reinstall) a mchine from Win 98 to Win 2k Pro. Now, when I shut down the machine, it does not automatically power down, as it did in the past. Is there any way to re-enable this feature? Or is it unavailable with the NT based OS?

Thanks!

Hello,
Easy fix. Go to control panel, power options, APM, and check "Enable Advanced Power Management Support", and click OK. I can't remember if it requires a restart. Good Luck!!
