    Apologies to all if I am going back over old ground, but have only just
    found this group!

    I have just upgraded to 7 Ultimate from Vista Ultimate and now have the
    problem that when shutting down my system gets right through everything
    correctly, but once it gets to the monitor being 'closed' it leaves the
    fans and disks running. I have to then manually power off. Did not have
    this problem once with Vista and at present have less software loaded
    than previous and that does not include Spybot.

    All suggestion welcome, as I'm getting a bit frustrated :)

    Does the motherboard, BIOS and chipset drivers support Windows 7. Check
    for updates at the motherboard manufacturers website. Update install as
    needed.

    Sounds like you need to change the power button settings in the control
    panel.

    Here are a couple of links to sites that describe how to do it in both Vista
    and it's latest clone, Windows 7.
    http://www.howtogeek.com/howto/windows-vista/change-the-windows-vista-power-buttons-to-shut-down/

    http://www.vistax64.com/tutorials/63567-power-options-sleep-mode-problems.html

    I suspect something is set to the sleep or hibernate mode rather than
    shutdown but it could also be a setting in the bios as well. The second
    link shows info on that as well as more than I wanted to read about the
    subject.
