why do i need to click twice to shut down?

I am a new user to XP Home, when I want to shut down I click the red turn off button on my computer and the screen fades - then I have to click again before it actually shuts downs.

Any ideas?

You could always use the power button on your pc case after going to
Start/ControlPanel/Performance and Maintenance/PowerOptions/Advanced tab/
then under Power Buttons change it to Shut down computer

I use a program called 'quick shutdown', the icon sits in your system tray and you just double click it and voila, remember to turn the monitor off click here HTH TR
