    Anyone know how to STOP a computer from turning off??

    I'm trying MPXPLAY on an IBM Personal Computer 350 p166. When I exit mpxplay, it automatically turns the computer off instead of just going back to a dos prompt.

    Does anyone know how to stop the shutdown and bypass the switch? Thanks.
