"You can now safely turn off your computer"

  1. hi all;

    I wld prefer my PC to power off when I shut down my WinME, rather then
    showing me the msg "You can now safely turn off your computer"

    Is this a design feature in WinME ? My guess is due to design of my
    motherboard and ATX form factor. But I wish to listen to your advice to

    Tks & peace

    I am assuming, you want to turn your computer completely
    off so that consumes no power when you Shutdown from your
    Windows desktop. You can set your machine to do this: Go
    to Start|Settings|Control Panel |Power Options. When you
    are there you can set your machine up to do what you want.
    I am not aware of any machine that "unplugs itself", so to
    speak so... you still have to push the power OFF button on
    the front panel of your computer.
    I am not sure why you want to shut it completely OFF. When
    in standby, for instance, most machines consume
    essentially zero power. Good luck.

    Hmmm. If I power down, then push the front panel switch, the computer starts
    up again!

    P.S. When I do power down, the last thing that happens is a nice healthy
    "click", like a relay kicking out. AFAIK, there is no way to disconnect from
    the mains without pulling the plug, but I don't need to press the power
    switch in a power down sequence.

    I am running an HP Pavilion, but the behavior of Gateway and Compaq
    computers I have seen is identical.
