Problem Description
System will restart instead of shutting down

Changing "PowerDownAfterShutdown" value from 0 to 1 in Registry does not help

1. Install the Compaq Power Management Softpaq first from Compaq download site
example: for Evo N600c is from: ... 14664.html (SP20835.exe)

- follow the on-screen instruction then install it accordingly.

2.When the patch is successfully installed, edit the Registry:
a. Click START/RUN, enter REGEDIT.EXE and press the ENTER key to continue.
b. Go to HK_Local_Machine\Software\Microsoft\WindowsNT\CurrentVersion\WinLogon, and Change the registry key "PowerDownAfterShutdown" from 0 to 1.
c) Exit the Registry editor and restart NT for change to take effect.
