windows doesn't want to turn off

  ali888 03:38 30 Jan 2007


I was wondering if i could get some help here. What should i do to shut down my laptop, Fujitsu? I already clicked "turn off" button from the shutdown dialog window but nothing happen after that. I waited 5-10 minutes and nothing happen still. I got no warning or errors messages. What should i do?

I've got windows XP Pro running on my laptop

Thank you in advance

Or try this:

1- Start/Run and type Regedit
3- Click on “Control”
4- Select “Wait to kill service timeout”
5- Right click and select “Modify”
6- Set to a lower value than 2000
7- A setting of 200 will be sufficient

Normal setting is 2000 but can safely be reduced to 200 for a quick shutdown. Sometimes in PCs, including my own, an extra nought is added on to make it 20000. Not sure why this happens but when it does it leads to a very long shutdown time.
