    the minlogon_shutodown.exe fixed it for me.. you just have to run it at startup

    Attached is a small app that'll run silently and leave an icon in your system tray. It looks out for WM_POWERBROADCAST messages and calls SetProcessShutdownParameters() to become the highest priority app to receive shutdown messages. If PBT_APMQUERYSUSPEND or PBT_APMQUERYSTANDBY are received (system is entering sleep / standby mode and the OS queries applications to see if it's okay to enter this state), the app sends back BROADCAST_QUERY_DENY to abort entering sleep / standby mode. A timer is then started, which calls ExitWindowsEx(EWX_POWEROFF, EWX_FORCEIFHUNG) to shutdown the PC.

    So if you set your PC to 'standby' when your power button is pushed, this app will cancel the standby command, and shut down your PC instead.
    Starfox I ran across your small app searching why minlogon caused my PC not to shutoff. I got it workin well now. I wanted to send my thanks along to you.

    I'm using it too. I thought for sure my ACPI problems were due to me removing something I shouldn't have from XP, but a full install results in the same problem. With this app I don't have to hibernate every time, or manually select shut down in Road Runner. Thanks.

    Starfox, you rock!
    I've been reinstalling/uninstalling XP and XPe to find out what's wrong with my setup. I didnt know it was because of minlogon till this thread.

    Your workaround works flawlessly. Thank you!

    Between this and frodobaggins' CDA workaround, I think a lot of my headaches with eWF is starting to disappear

    S3 Suspend not working with minilogon

    Cool for everyone who can shutdown... but I'm trying to suspend to ram! Any Ideas?

    if you are suspending to ram.. then you would have no need to use minlogon....

    minlogon speeds up the boot time considerably for those of use who are doing a cold boot every time we get in the car

    well, I heard minilogon also reduces the footprint. I've also got space consideratoins...does anyone know the difference b/t winlogon and minilogon for this? Also, to switch back to winlogon, what registry change do I need to make?

    minlogon does not decrease the footprint.. XPe does...

    well, I figured it out in a moment of sheer...well...something... I must have had old minilogon/ewf files. I upgraded the ewf files from a zip file someone posted, but not minilogon. I just upgraded that and now it works fine!
