Advanced Power Mode, Win XP pro

I use Win XP pro, after fitting a new main board, some time a go I have the following problem, which I have learned to live with, but would prefer to be solved.


The problem is when I go to switch off,through, Start, turn off computer, it goes through all the checks etc then powers down and immediately powers up again. In order to switch my PC off I have to be quick with the power button between this action.

I have seen mention of the following:-Control Panel, Power Options, APM tab, ensure "Enable Advanced Power Management support" is ticked.

When I look in my control panel, power options all I have are the following tabs;-
Power Schemes, Advanced,Hibernate, and UPS.

Nowhere can I find one that mentions APM, where has it gone to??

Right-click on My Computer, click Properties, click the Advanced tab. Under Startup & Recovery click Settings. Under System Failure untick the box in front of Automatically restart.

Done that so will see what happens when I switch off next time.

Thanks, will update when done, but maybe tomorrow.

Have you also checked the Power Management settings in the Bios?

Have just powered down and it restarted all by itself as usual.

Not sure what you mean Stuartli

Power on Lan or Wake on Lan enabled?

If so disable it.

Hi Gaz 25 I do not have this function in the Bios, I have ACPI function, enabled, and others but nothing like you described.

In my Award bios on a five-year-old Elite mobo, you can enable or disable Power Management according to requirements and, if required, time standby or suspend modes for HDD and monitor.

I have it set to User Managed and use XP's Power Management configuration.
