  • Problem shutting down with frodo..

    Hey guys..

    When i press the power button on my laptop it shuts down windows and turns off.
    This happens even if frodo is playing..

    Now, If i use -menu-exit-shutdown- in frodoplayer, windows shuts down then i get the 'it is now safe to turn off your computer' message.

    The laptop wont turn itself off like it does if i press power or go -start-shutdown-.

    Is there a fix for this?

    Thanks!

                    I installed the motherboard drivers that came with the laptop and also downloaded and installed the latest bios.
                    This improved the problem, half the time i got the message, the other 50% of the time it shut down fine.
                    About a month later i chucked out the griffin power mate i was using. now it shuts down fine about 90% of the time.
                    I have no idea what causes it to freeze the other 10%.

                    I also had myself and 3 friends (total of 7 pc's) try it on home / work computers. It vairied between 50% and 10% failure. I.e. it locked up shutting down. Most of these were fairly new high end machines.
                    Only thing was they all used the copy of frodo i had on a cd so thinking about it maybe i will just try downloading frodo again. My laptop allways (99%) shuts down ok if i use the windows option or any other program other than frodo..
