If your Win2K does not shutdown then just pull the power out of the wall.

Make sure your PC's motherboard is fully ACPI compliant. ACPI is newer/better than the older APM standard, which Windows 2000 does not handle very well.

Instead of going to START\SHUT DOWN, hit CTRL+ALT+DEL and choose SHUT DOWN\SHUT DOWN AND POWER OFF.

Good Luck.

Have you tired going to the Windows Update site and getting service pack 2? Service Pack 3 is out now but I would hesitate to use that yet. I have had print spooler problems with it. Also, you can do Ctrl | Alt | Delete and end all tasks and then Shutdown.

Try getting the latest updates from the Windows update site. Don't use Service Pack 3 yet, try SP2 instead. Also, you can try a workaround of adding a shortcut to your desktop with a command line of rundll.exe user.exe,exitwindows I use it a lot with Win98/2000 systems.
