  1. i have a old celeron 300, have just put xp on it but when I click turn off, it( It is safe to turn your computer off ) come up with that , I then push the off and on button and it seams to reboot , the only way to turn off is to hold my finger on the start and stop button until it powers down, if I take it off straight away it will boot up again !

    look in control panel at Power Options...there is a setting for the power button
    some mobo's have bios settings for shutdown.

    Alot of Old system like the one your talking about dont turn off via software. that only shuts down windows. once you receive the message it is safe to shutdown you need to shut down via the power button on the case.
