I reinstalled xp/ home. When I shut down the computer, windows logs off then the computer tells me it is now safe to turn off the computer. I have to press the power button.
It never did this before, it would shut down and turn off all at once.
Where do I find the controls to this? I have looked in control/power options and it doesnt look the same as my other computers, some stuff missing.

thanks, charlie

right click on the desktop/properties/screensavers/power in ther you will find power options ,or you may need to do it in the bios

fixed it, thanks!!

your welcome
