Giggle n' Bits 20:23 03 Dec 2003 Locked Having problem with comptuer running XP Home that when shutting pc down it goes to the XP log screen and says its safe to turn off PC (Like them older pcs use to).In the Bios I notice S1 is set and also there is a S3 in the Bios. Which of the S1 or S3 is correct or how do I determine this.To make thePC shut down and power off what can I check as its a pain as I have t hold the power button on case 4 seconds.I know the 4 seconds power off is normal/ aoption but the manual shut down by using it from the desktop is the main anoyance.
