    Probably you have some trouble with the power management settings in XP, but I don't know anything else about it, sorry.
    However, there should be an emergency shutdown implemented in your front power switch. Try keeping it pressed until the machine powers down.
    Switching it off the way you do is not exactly a healthy option...but I understand your situation, of course.
