I have a Dell Optiplex GX1 which is old, but runs very well. I'm new to Windows 2000 Professional, just installed it, and so far I really like it. However, I noticed one thing that's extremely annoying. When I choose "Shut Down", instead of completely shutting down and turning off the computer, it will go through the motions, and then reach a screen which says "It is Now Safe To Turn off Your Computer." So I have to manually wait and turn off the PC. I did a few searches on Google, and found some solutions that suggest reformatting the hard drive! I was wondering if any of your gurus out there know a utility, or an easier way of having the machine completely shut down and turn off my desktop CPU when I choose Shut Down. Any ideas/help? Thanks.
