Shutdown & Turn Off

I had WinME on my PC and when I selected shut down it shut down Windows, then switched the machine off.

I have now upgraded to Win2k (format & install) and it doesn't do this any more.  It just sits at the old "it is now safe to turn off your computer" screen, so I have to manually turn it off.

Where is the option to get it to turn the machine off when it shuts down?  

Cheers, Dak.

another easier way to fix this problem without downloading anything..

Go to My Compter then Control pannel ...
Now go to POWER OPTIONS..
Click on the APM tab..
Then Tick the "enable advanced power management support"
press apply..
it should find New hardware..
then go to start, shutdown..
your computer should reboot..
when the windows desktop has come up go to start, shutdown..
Your Computer should shutdown your computer properly..
