I want to turn my Laptop off!

  muscic lover 14:20 12 Sep 2007

When i switch off my laptop and sign out of windows XP it goes through the motions of switching everything off except itself!

I get to a screen that says "it is now safe to switch off your computer" and it stays there until I press the power button, then it switches off.

I have looked in the power management section in the 'control panel' but it still does it.

Any ideas folk?
