When I select turn off PC the standby button is not highlighted only the turn off and re-start button I have to therefore await for the message it's now safe to turn off. Please can you assist in getting my pc to turn off automatically like it used to do. I have windows xp home edition.

But I don't want to lose all my stuff, which is what would happen if I do system resore won't it?

not so, only progs installed since the prob occurred would be affected, and if a recent happening there should be nil effect.

final question how do I do a system restore ?

start progs accessories system tools restore and pick a date just before prob happened.
