Default Re: always on

When did it start happening?

I know that the ability for software to shut down the computer was introduced with ATX boards, and that feature was not included with AT. If its not displaying the message, but your monitor shuts down, your okay.

I have never used XP with an AT board, so maybe XP just doesn't display it.. same with Linux.
