WIN 95 SHUTDOWN

If your PC shutsdown properly it is fine. It's an autopower function of your PC. You will know if it doesn't shutdown properly if it says that windows was not shutdown properly and wants to run scandisk. You are given the prompt stating that it's okay to shutdown your PC if you PC hasn't been configured with this feature (BIOS) or does not support it.

Incomplete shutdowns in Win 95 are not uncommon. The two largest culprits for this are video drivers and virus scanners. If you get the latest video drivers for your card, and disable any resident virus scanners it may clear up your shutdown problem. If that does not I would suggest reloading your Win 95 over top of itself and replacing any of the updated files with your Win 95 version for consistancey. This will mean you will have to load someo of your applications and all of your enhanceddrivers but should clear up any issues with drivers.

Try booting up in Safe Mode and then shutdown and see if the screen appears. If it does then go ahead and try to sutdown normal. You may want to check and see what is running prior to the shutdown by pressing ctl-alt-del and looking at the task manager. There may be some app running that you loaded recently that is causing the problem.

I assume you mean that the PC is powering off automatically before you see this message. I this PC new to you? If you are not accustomed to this I can see how it may be a little startling. This is normal for some newer bios power management configurations. The "It is now safe for you to shutdown" is probably going by so fast that you can't see it before the system powers off. Don't worry about it. Most people here are complaining that their computers don't do this.

As noted earlier, the utility is shutdown.exe from the NT server resource kit.
The command line is:
shutdown \\computername /r
the 'r' switch specifies that the computer should reboot after shutdown. the /t switch allows you to set a specific number of minutes before the reboot occurs.
