Take a look at the different shutdown diagnoses here (WinXP and Win2K are similar): http://www.aumha.org/win5/a/shtdwnxp.htm

check that the pc is setup to shut down rather than hibernate, or go into standby..

check on the power options in the control panel.


see the following link for more details.

I know the issue with that.  You have an older motherboard that isn't 100 percent acpi compatible.

Easy way to fix it:

Load windows.

Right click on an empty portion of your desktop-click on properties.

Click on the Screensaver tab.

Click on the Power Saving button at the bottom.

Click on the Advanced tab (i think its called advanced or maybe APM).

Check the box that says to use Advanced APM settings.

Click okay, it will take a while before it finally gets back to the desktop.

Now when you shut down, it will shut the computer down completely.
