Hello I a new Server with Windows server 2008 and am seeing a Kernel-Power event ID 41 error in the event log it only occurs on reboot after properly shutting down the machine not sure why everything appears to shutdown properly and the server reboots fine.  I have done tons of searching but only find articles referring to windows freezing or BSOD's but mine appears fine just see the errors in the event log.   Just thought someone may have ran into this before any help would be appreciated.  Thanks.   Also I have installed all the newest drivers.

Thanks but no Audio Drivers are installed on this machine.  I have already looked at that article.

I have figured out the issue is a know problem with Ultrabac backup software not shutting down fast enough for Windows Server 2008 so it creates the Kernel-Power error upon reboot.
