Fan still running after shut down

Yesterday I upgraded my daughter’s AMD K7 – 548MHz system from Win 98 to XP Pro. Now on turning off it does not close down properly. The screen goes blank OK but the processor fan continues to run & the tower indicator light remains on. To switch off completely the tower on/off switch has to be pressed once. (a second press restarts the computer). I have tried waiting for over an hour before pressing the button in case it was a slow shut down but the fan continued to run.
Has anyone any idea how to correct this?

It may well be that you need to enable auto shut down
Go into control panel - Admin tools - computer management and click device manager - select view and then select view hidden devices
lokk for APM power open it up and then double click the apm device revealed - enable it for use and your problem may be cured.

Putting a tick in “APM > Enable Advanced Power Management Support” solved the problem. My thanks to all of you for your super quick responses as usual.
