I have looked all over the xp power management but I see no such "automatic" check box for shut down???

Question

when I upgraded from win98 to xpPro, my computer no longer shuts it's self off when I shut down. I see an answer for that on your site but it doen't seem to apply to XP. it says go to setting and check an "automatic" box in power manager. I have looked all over the xp power management but I see no such "automatic" check box for shut down???

Any Ideas?

thanks

To tackle your problem try the following:

Double Click the my computer icon on your desktop

Once in the my computer window, double click the control panel icon

In the control panel window, scroll down and double click the power options icon

When in the power options window, click on the advanced tab

When you have the advance options tab displayed you are going to see a option that states "When the power button is pressed " select an option that suits your computing needs and click ok...

Shut down your computer and wala your problem is solved :0)
