in XP you'd enable 'APM' in power options,but that doesnt seem to apply to winME,worth a look though.

from windowsME help;

"When you shut down Windows, your computer might automatically turn off before you receive the message that says it's safe to turn off your computer.

This behavior is a power management feature. It occurs only on computers with a Plug and Play BIOS that supports either power management features or Advanced Configuration and Power Interface (ACPI)."
