#1486 closed Bug (Wont Fix)

Powerdown doesn't work under Windows 2000

Version: Severity: None
Keywords: power shut powerdown shutdown Cc:


As discussed in

Different models of Windows 2000 workstations do not power down when using the option in Autoit - instead they get the "it's now safe to turn off your computer".

Shutdown(1+8) (Shutdown + Powerdown)
Shutdown(4+8) (Force Powerdown)
Shutdown(4+8+1) (Force Powerdown + Shutdown)

Compiled under version, they all work perfectly.
Compiled under version, they all just do a shutdown - no power down.
Likewise, I've tried the same under the shiny new - same as (no power down).

XP SP3 works fine. 2K SP4 doesn't.

AFAIK If you ever see that message it's due to bad drivers/BIOS on that machine. At the API level we've done everything to make the poweroff happen.
