I have reinstalled XP on a neighbour’s PC.

When powering down, the following message appears: IT IS SAFE TO TURN OFF COMPUTER.

I have accessed Power Option Properties to get rid of the message, but to no avail for the following reasons.

Under the heading Power Schemes, the option SYSTEM STANDBY is missing.
Also, under the heading, ADVANCE, the following two options are missing.
1. Prompt for password…….......
2. Power Button option is not available.

Would welcome any advice on this matter.
Many thanks.

When you reinstalled XP, did you then install the motherboard drivers ...?

TonyM. No I did not install motherboard drivers.
I must confess, I did not even think of that!
But all is well now.

I followed xania's link, under the heading APM, I enabled 'Advanced Power Management Support'.
The PC now powers down without the message: It is safe etc.
My thanks.
