With Windows 98 I was able to log off with no need to press the power button.
After installing XP, the message "You can shut down the computer" appears and I have to press the power button 7 seconds to have it to shut down
Can you help?

Hello. Welcome to the forums.

In device manager one of the catagories is called "computer". Under this catagory does it list standard pc or advanced configuration and power interface (ACPI)?

I have had this happen before. They only way I could fix it was to do a repair installation on XP.
