PC does not shut down properly

I installed Windows 98 on my  brand new computer. When I try to shut down, the power does not shut down. Windows 98 does, but the case light is still on and the power is up. I have a black screen but I have to shut down the power by manually turning off the switch in the back of my case. If I try to shut down the power by pressing the power button in front of the case, it does not work. What "makes" the power shut down. Is it a setting in the BIOS? or is it Windows 98 ?

Please do not do this when Windows98 is running.  Click start, shut down, then shut down again.

Try:
Press and "HOLD" the power button for 4 or 5 seconds.  

Did your computer shut down?

What should I not do when Windows 98 is running?
But How do you fix the problem without holding the power button for 3 or 4 seconds..I just want to have my computer powered off without manually holding the power button?
