soft power down

  TC 22:17 29 Apr 2004

I have installed new motherboard,processor and memory. Everything is working fine but I am unable to get a soft power down. I get to "it's safe to turn off.....".
It's not a huge problem to press the off button I know, just annoying.
Motherboard is Asrock K7S8X, Amibios version 3.31a, cpu AMD AthlonXP2500+, 512mb PC3200, windows xp home.
In the bios, suspend to ram is set to auto.
In power options, enable advanced power management settings is ticked.
I read on a web site advice to change a registry value for powerdownaftershutdown from 0 to 1, I have done that but it has not worked.
Also in device manager, tried show hidden devices, enable NT Apm/Legacy inferface mode. This will not enable, it says windows cannot load drivers for this device.
Any ideas?

Thanks for replying. I've visited the site already I've looked there under the powerdown issues that is where I found the advice to enable NT Apm/Legacy inferface mode but I couldn't.
