XP and power off problem

  GBL 14:01 01 Mar 2008

For several years now I have put up with XP Pro not shutting down at power off but rebooting, I have had to hold my finger ready to press the button. Now all is as it should be and the only thing I have done recently is to remove a redundant Dial up Modem PCI card, no drivers etc were installed as when I went to BB and did a reinstall I never bothered to put them on. I only left it in to fill the hole in the case. So that must have been the cause even whilst in use. I only post this as it may help others who have the same problem as I did, the cause may be the same, who knows. The mind boggles at times.

Was probably set to "wake on ring" in the BIOS causing it to reset.

No idea, but no problem now, thanks.
