when shutting down, and the computer doesn't turn off?

a friend of mine just installed win2k and now, when he shuts down, it doesn't turn off the computer automatically. is there a setting in win2k for that so that it turns off also?

If you feel safe moving around the BIOS, i'd check the power saving feature settings in there. Just be careful not to change anything else...
