How to aceivate APM

  shere-khan 07:14 08 Mar 03

I have a PC running XP Home. When I first installed XP it automatically powered the PC off when I shut down. I then had a problem with the power supply and as a result I had to get the PC repaired. Whilst being repaired the hard drive had to be replaced so I had to reinstall XP.
Whilst it was being repaired the repair company must have changed the BIOS settings as when XP was reinstalled it says APM is not available.
I have reset the BIOS to say APM is available but how do I get XP to rescognise this without deinstalling and resinstalling?
Anyone got any ideas.

Help and Support Center (Grr..americanisms) suggests that Power Options in the Control Panel may be able to help. However it only has the 'go into standby/hibernation after x minutes' options while memory suggests that the ATX function of turning itself off is somewhere else... it'll come to me in a bit...

Get the repair company do do something - they altered the setup, it is their responsibility to put it back as it was - that's what you paid them for.
