am1, Windows has the option to restart, make sure that's not checked before you try anything else. Sometimes it's the obvious things. If it still does it after that, maybe you need to try a different approach? FWIW, Windows seems to have been plagued with shutdown problems of one sort or another since day 1. I use a standalone shutdown proggie (for convenience) called 'Slawdog' (said to work on all versions). Get it free @: http://www.slawdog.com/products/sma... among other places. Works good and I drag/dropped the icon into my quick launch so it'd be handy for use. HTH Ed in Texas
