Computer doesn’t power down when users shut down
In some cases, Windows XP’s Setup program can misidentify the power management scheme in a computer’s BIOS as Advanced Power Management (APM) instead of Advanced Configuration Power Interface (ACPI). When this happens, users will notice that the computer no longer automatically powers down when they shut down Windows XP. Instead, they’ll see the message It Is Now Safe To Turn Off Your Computer and be forced to manually press the power button to turn off the computer.

You can verify this problem by checking the power management configuration in two places—Device Manager and the Control Panel. To quickly access Device Manager, select Start | Run, type Devmgmt.msc in the Open text box, and click OK. When you see the Device Manager window, locate and open the System Devices item. If Setup identified the system as having an APM-compliant BIOS, it will be listed as a Standard PC in the System Devices tree. (If it were identified as having an ACPI-compliant BIOS, you would see it listed here as a Microsoft ACPI-Compliant System.)

To check the power management configuration in the Control Panel, open the Control Panel from the Start menu. If the system is using Category View, select Performance And Maintenance and then click the Power Options icon. If the system is using Classic View, just click the Power Options icon. If Setup identified the system as having an APM-compliant BIOS, you’ll see an APM tab in the Power Options Properties dialog box. (If the system were identified as having an ACPI-compliant BIOS, you wouldn’t see an APM tab.)

You may be able to fix this problem with a BIOS update. To begin, check with the computer manufacturer’s Web site to see if it’s providing the latest BIOS update. If you’re troubleshooting an off-brand computer, you may be on your own as far as tracking down the BIOS update. Here’s how.

Once you obtain and install the BIOS update according to the manufacturer’s instructions, you must perform what I call a Refresh Installation, in which you reinstall Windows XP on top of an existing Windows XP installation. You must perform this reinstall operation because the power management features are tied to a special power management Hardware Abstraction Layer (HAL). During the Refresh Installation procedure, Setup will completely redetect all installed hardware, including the updated BIOS, and rebuild the power management HAL as well as the part of the registry in which information about the installed hardware is stored.

When the screen is white instead of taking out the battery and putting it back in can I do something else?


Not sure why your removing the battery?
If you are shuting down the machine. Close all running programs before shuting down otherwise the machine has to close each program in turn before thr machine can shut down all together. Depending on how the settings are for the power button. The shut down process can be forced by holding down the power button until the machine has shut down. Black screen instead of white. Hope this helps answer your question.

If i took a break from my ipad to answer the phone and talked for 5 to 10 minutes, how do i get it to shut down in about 1.5 minutes. it did this before, and now it does not shut down. why?


Set the auto lock for 2 minutes. Keep in mind that the iPad will not auto sleep and lock during certain application evolutions, like video, game application etc.

if it's just sitting at the spring board, it will auto lock at the specified time interval. 993eeec1-2ff2-4698-acad-f9b1e7b2d782.jpg imthemobile guru

PC shuts down when accessing wireless network


Check in Device Manager to see if there is a problem with the Wireless Network Adapter. If you see a Yellow! or a RedX, then right-click on the network adapter see what the status of it is. It has a troubleshooting section. The only part of your wireless adapter that could possibly shut down the computer would be the driver.

How do I disable AVStation on startup?


I feel really stupid.

For some reason, I had decided that the slider switch to turn on the computer slid to the left. No, that turns on the AVStation. I had always, for two years, slid the switch to the right, which turns on the computer.

Helps when you're not hit with a truly "senior moment". Or, at least, that's what I going to blame it on.

Have now corrected the direction of my switch sliding finger. As I say, I feel really, really stupid.

Thanks,
