Using the Power button to shutdown
Posted on 2004-08-15
Hi there, I have Windows ME on one of my machines. It's on a Dell Optiplex GX150.
I once had a HDD in that machine that has Windows XP as the OS, I could use the power button to shutdown the computer (it shuts down just like going to start -> shutdown, but quicker).
Now that I have Windows ME installed in the same machine, I'm use to shutting it down using the power button. Is there anything I could download that allows me to do this? At the present moment, when I press the power button on the computer, it just instantly turns off and when I start it up again it obviously says improper shutdown detected.
In the power option of the control panel there's nothing that says power button, I assume windows me don't have this option?
Thanks very much for your answers in advance. If you need any more information that could help assist you, please ask.
