A lot of IBM laptops do not have Nvidia graphics. Shutdown errors can be caused by many reasons including bad drivers and programs that do not shut down properly. It can be tough to isolate the specific problem. Here is what I did with my IBM laptop when it had this problem. I hope it works for you!

Windows XP Freeze at Shutdown with IBM Laptop: I had this problem while setting up an IBM T43p with XP Pro from the IBM Product Recovery disks. After much frustration I found the problem was a bad driver. In Device Manager>System Devices I uninstalled "Atmel TPM legacy device," a Trusted Platform Module driver. The T43p would then shutdown and restart without a hitch.

Go to Start > Run and type services.msc. Locate the nVidia Driver Helper item and right click it. Select Properties. Set the startup value of the service to “Manual” or “Disabled”.
Your computer should shut down normally now.

I cannot shut down my computer when i press shut down my computer will restart.


To see if the problem is in the setting and not a hidden crash just type this command
SHUTDOWN -s -t 01
If with it the pc shuts down then go to Control Panel, click Power Options, click the Advanced tab. In the Power Buttons section, under “When I press the power button on my computer,” select “Shutdown.”

All i do is click shut down but it doesnt do anything at all. what should i do?


CTL,ALT.DEL select task manager under there you should see that there is a program that is not shutting down thus causing your issue. You need to shut it down before shutting down the computer again. Otherwise hold down the power button to FORCE SHUTDOWN.

Thanks and do be considerate when leaving feedback and ratings.

When I shut down my computer, I think that it is shutting down completly. All lights are off indicating that it is shut down. Then a small blue window will appear and will say "Entering Power Safe Mode"....


If you are turning off your computer by pressing the front panel power button, it is probably just putting Windows to sleep but not shutting the computer off. If your computer has Windows Vista, the default is to hibernate and not shut down even if you shut down through Vista. The "power save" message you see is coming from the monitor, which is letting you know it isn't getting a signal from the computer anymore but the power is still on. Windows will start up again from sleep mode if someone or something moves the mouse or presses a key.

The solution is to make sure the computer is actually shut down. In Vista you can do this by clicking the arrow near the power icon on the Start menu. This gives you the option of shutting down instead of hibernating. In XP, shut the computer down using the start menu shutdown option instead of the computer power button. Then the power will shut down completely.
