    MM not allowing shutdown

    Ok, so this was brought up earlier, and there wasn't an answer ever posted too it. When MM is open, and you press the shutdown button on the computer all that happens is MM closes, and you have to press the power button again to make it shut the system down. I didnt have this problem on my previous carputer install, but for some reason it has shown up now. Any help with this would be appreciated.

    I have the exact same issue! I can't just turn of the car and let the M1-ATX shut down when MM is running. This is the one and only issue I have with MM.

    I currently have the same problem after doing a Windows XP update. I will try removing MM and reinstalling it over the weekend, or have you guys tried this already. Anyway, I'll let you know if it works.

    I haven't found a solution to this problem either. I have a feeling most people don't have this issue, or there would be more discussion about this subject.

    I tried reinstaling MM in case Windows XP update had overwritten any common files. Still had the same problem. Next I tried a restore to a week before the Windows XP update and still have the same problem. I have also tried on home test bench with same results.
    I know it may not be Windows XP fault but this was the first time i noticed it.
    Hope someone can provide the answer, someone usually does.
    Cheers

    Don't hold your breath This problem is OLD and you can find lots of posts about it. I think the MM Launcher tool was suppose to fix it but doesn't work 100% for all of us. I'm using Media Engine and the strange thing is that I can't get it to launch inside ME the FIRST time after a fresh reboot. It hangs on the Map Monkey start screen and it has to be killed with ctrl+alt+del. If I then restart ME, it works absolutley perfect! You can turn of the key and my M1-ATX closes windows like it should...but the next reboot, I get the same problem again. Really hope someone finds a sollution

    The only thing that would effect shutdown that I can think of would be the option "Reconnect on power resume" (or something like that) which watches the system for a hibernate command.

    Try disabling that option and seeing if it still happens

    I have spent a few more hours on this and found this; When I try to run the launcher, it hangs and I get an error after a minute or so...something like "This task cannot complete because another application is busy"... When I look at the processes with ctrl-alt-del I can see 2(!) Launchers running. I force one of them to close and both dies...then try to launch again and everything works ok! This thing will surely make me crazy if I don't find a solution soon. It embedds so nicley into my front end when it works!
