I have finally completed a clean install of Win XP Home. It worried me to death during the formatting procedure, but it seems to have gone through OK. However, there is one silly little point that I do not like about XP and hopefully there is some one out there who can tell me what to do.
The problem is this:- when I go to switch off the machine, I go through the Start Button then Turn off Computer. This then goes through the switch off procedure, but does not switch itself off. It comes up with a message that says It is now Safe to Switch Off! I then have to switch off manually. On my Win 98 SE, I switched off and it went off automatically. Equally so on another machine that has XP Home that shuts down automatically with out any secondary asking!
Thanks to VoG™, I found the answer from this link. click here. It was in a previous query about Shut Down and Switch off from Maryp on 28/11/2004. I should have tried the Search button before asking the question!! Thanks VoG™ and Maryp!!
