Hi.

I hope someone can help me, i'm tearing my hair out...

Every time i shutdown the computer, it stops at the "you can safely turn off your computer" screen.
I'd like it to auto shut-off. I've looked in the BIOS and fiddled about a bit, but i can't find the awnser.
Also i have to press the Power Button for 4 seconds till it turns off, even after setting it to "Instant Off" in the "Soft-Off by PWR-BUTTN function" in BIOS.

What gives?
Cheers, if anyone can help...

If you're not using ACPI, check that APM support is enabled in Control Panel - Power Management. There should be "APM" tab.

Thanks Mictlantecuhtli for the quick reply.

What exactly is ACPI?
Is it better than APM?

Thanks again...
