    Re: Its now safe to turn your computer off

    I remember this problem years ago - I upgraded on a non supported/ ACPI compliant motherboard. In device manager > show hidden devices > disable advanced ACPI support - did the trick - it was/is documented on an XP Shutdown problem site here: http://aumha.org/win5/a/shtdwnxp.php

    HI,

    This problem occurs quite regularly with our PC's - dead easy to solve

    Go to Device Manager, Under the View tab click Show Hidden Devices - you will find a new device shown with a cross through it - simply right click this and enable it and hey presto you're machines will shut down
