Windows 2000 Shut down - no power off?

Hi,

I have a PII350 MHz, on an ASUS P2B 440BX Motherboard.
I'm playing with Windows 2000 Beta something. When I click shut down. In windows '98 my computer powers off, but in win2K this does happen. Instead I get a box saying "it is now safe to shut off your computer". How do I set the computer to power off in win2K after pressing shut down?

Thanks

Check, and set the key below to 1.

[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\Winlogon]
"PowerdownAfterShutdown"="1"

The problem is that your bios is not ACPI complient.  But if you go to your power options under control panel, there should be a tab called AMP, and under that there should be a option to enable AMP management support, select it, and that should fix your problem.

Sorry, not AMP, its APM (Advanced Power Management)
