Hello

I have an ATX Mainboard with Windows NT Server 4.0. How can i make, that the Computer automatically power off, when i shut down? With Win 95, it works without problems.

Thanks

There are some registry entries with such options but they have no effect. I think there is another thing, that must be installed.

Windows nt does not support any type of power managment including soft off.  Nt 5.0 will fully support this and other power managment functions. You there fore can not do it via regisry or any other way.

It is possible However and I do stress however.
You must obtain a HAL.DLL file from the manufacturer of your motherboard.
The HAL file is the Hardware abstraction layer file and would be created by the
folks who made your motherboard.

Windows NT 4.0 is capable of doing the same thing, but does not do so by default. To enable this feature:

Start RegEdit (regedt32.exe)
Find HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE/Software/Microsoft/Windows NT/CurrentVersion/Winlogon
Edit (or add) the following item: PowerDownAfterShutdown: set to 1

rghetti is correct.  I have a digital notebook running NT.  DEC provide HAL.DLL and the note book powers itself off when shutdown.
