    It is now safe ...

    I have installed Windows 2000 on an old IBM laptop. When I shut down Windows it ends up with a screen that says "It is now safe to shut down your computer." Then I have to turn it off manually. How can I get it to turn all the way off?

    If the laptop is really old, its BIOS may not support automatic shutdown.

    See "It is Now Safe to Turn Off Your Computer" error message when you try to shut down your computer.
