XP Shutdown

By BigMoonDaddy ·
After installing Windows XP and installing all of it's updates, when I got simply shut down the system, I get the old "you may shut down your computer" message as if the computer was an old AT. My hardware is an ATX case, the PCChips M767V MB with onboard sound/video. An adaptec scsii card hooking up the Plextor 8X cdrw. Everything else is run of the mill. Has anyone come across this situation before and what have they done to correct the problem(s)?

XP Shutdown

For some reason, on many systems, XP does not enable APM management.
Go to device manager,
In the view menu, select show hidden devices,
Click on APM and enable it.

That should take care of things.

If not, check out the detailed shut down guide at www.aumha.org

Answer 1 is probably right. Sometimes with other OS's I've actually had to remove the detected Advanced Power Management and let Windows re-detect it. Make sure it's APCM is enabled in your BIOS and that if you've got a service pack specifically for XP for your motherboard that you give it a try later if other options fail.
