    How are you initiating shutdown?

    Do you have SP-1 installed?

    Is the system up-to-date with patches?

    Are your device drivers up-to-date?

    Have you checked the power management settings for the NIC?

    Copy and paste the blue line into a desktop shortcut and try that to shut down your PC.
    I've been using it for years and I share it with all my customers.

    %windir%\System32\shutdown.exe -s -t 00 -f

    Good Luck,

    DrWho, will %windir%\System32\shutdown.exe -s -t 00 -f work on WinXP Pro computers as well? My old XP Pro often hangs at shutdown. Then, suddenly, it will cure itself, but a few weeks later, it starts hanging again. Also, whether or not it will work, I'd really appreciate it if you could explain what -s, -t, and -f do.

    Many thanks.

    If you start a command window (dos prompt) and type shutdown /? you will get all the available options explained. shutdown /? | more will page the output. This works with most commands that you can run from a dos prompt.

    Check in your bios for "wake on Lan" or anything else that can wake your computer and set to disable. This is quite likely the problem if you have restored to earlier version that did not have this problem but it still does it.
