    To turn on this feature:

    Start Regedit

    Go to HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE \ System \ CurrentControlSet \ Control \ Shutdown

    Create a string called FastReboot

    Give it a value of 1

    That is for W98 only. Which is your OS?

    If it's Win98 try this:

    To disable fast shutdown, follow these steps: 1. Click Start, point to Programs, point to Accessories, point to System Tools, and then click System Information.
    2. On the Tools menu, click System Configuration Utility.
    3. On the General tab, click Advanced.
    4. Click to select the Disable Fast Shutdown check box, click OK, and then click OK.
    5. Click Yes when you are prompted to restart your computer.

    Best Regard. :wave:
