How can I make my computer power off when I shut it down?

If you have checked the BIOS settings and the settings in the Power applet in Control Panel and they all seem to be correct.
Try this.
1) Open your registry editor.
2) Navigate to HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Control Panel\Desktop
3) In the right pane, double click the item named PowerOffActive.
4) In the value data box, give it a value of 1.

Note that this should cause the power to go off at shutdown, but it only applies to the user account that's logged on when you make the change.

To make it apply to all users, substitute the following key in step 2) HKEY_USERS\.DEFAULT\Control Panel\Desktop.
