Check to see if Advanced Power Management is turned on in the Power panel in the XP control panel.
I've got an older Slot A Athlon based system that used to be the family computer.. When we first got it, it would power down the computer automatically when you selected "Shutdown" from the start menu, in windows 98... But with XP it just goes to a "It is now safe to turn off your computer" screen..
Of course that means using the UPS +5 volts on pin 8 trick won't work if the computer doesn't turn off...
The motherboard I have must not support XP's power options or something.. It's missing most of the advanced power options.. All it has is "Always show icon on taskbar"
My A64 system has an area that says, "Power buttons"
I may try using 2000 instead of XP..
I've got the EN15000 and I'm facing this problem right now.. any suggestion guys?
i've searched the forum, tried to hack the registry.. nothing working
