JSI Tip 4637. How do I cause my Windows XP computer to power down when I shutdown?

If your computer's BIOS is Plug and Play-compatible, you can use Control Panel / Power Options to select the APM tab and check the Enable Advanced Power Management Support box.

NOTE: The options available are governed by hardware detection.
