Recently, I had fomatted my harddisk & reinstalled win98.
After that, I have discovered that when I go to start & shutdown my computer, my ATX computer casing will not auto POWER shutdown. Meaning that: "It will be safe to shutdown your computer now" screen will appear.
Last time, the casing will auto power shutown for me, that "shutown" screen will not appear & then the casing will power off itself. What have happened. Please help me.
Thank you

You must enabled APM (Advanced Power Management) both in the BIOS for your motherboard and in Win98.  Assuming it was powering down before you re-installed AND the board does support APM, and you didn't change the CMOS/BIOS settings, you should be able to go to the Win98 POWER Control Panel setup and enable the APM support for Win98.

Another possibility is that your system is NOT APM compliant and that your prior installation was using a system manufacturer driver for performing the powerdown.  In this case, check with your manufacturer and see if they have provided a Win98 power driver.
