I have a notebook computer runs on windows 98 and it can be shutted down by software. That's no need to press the power button to shut down.

However, after I upgrade to windows 2000. It cannot shut down by software. I have to press the power button everytime I shut down.

How to solve the problem? Can I set in the control panal?

Thanks

1) Make sure you have the latest BIOS that is win2k compatible.

2) Check out the ACPI options. If it is not turned on, then win2k will not recognize and use it, so the laptop will probably not turn off.
You will probably need to do a new install of win2k.
You can test it by installing into a seperate subdirectory.

I hope this helps !

Did you upgrade the drivers for your graphics card in w2K?
Completely disable APM (advanced power management) from the bios -
