  • Question

  • I have built an image (XPe). The computer
    type is Standard -PC. Everything works but one thing. I need to have the system
    automatically turn itself off when the shutdown is selected from the start
    tab.  Now I get the “it’s now safe to
    turn off power.”  The problem is this
    system does not support ACPI at all. In the image I built, I have included “NT
    APm/Legacy Interface node”, but I still am not getting the right results.  In the control panel –power options.  If I select the advanced tab, I do not get
    the Power button option at the bottom of that window.  Is there a way to get the system to shut down
    the way I want:?     Thank you for any help you can give.

  • Standard PC doesn't signal the power off switch to the supply. You have to have some right a driver that signals the power supply to turn off.

  • Did you try or does the PC support APIC?

    ...and why your opening a new thread?

    Search for: registryvalue: PowerOffAfterShutdown
    I don't think it will help but it's may worth a try.

  • I recently created a image which behaved as described by you. However, at least the system now shuts down and the display turned off (BTW: system is not powered off, since it does not support ACPI).

    I'm not sure, but I thought that this changed after I've enabled the "Enable Advanced power management ..." in the "APM" tab of the "Power Options" tab in control panel.
