    You probably need to enable your power management settings in the BIOS.
    Windows will only be able to do that if it is enabled in there.
    The reason a diamond shines so brightly is because it has many facets which reflect light.

    You could also try going to the Device Manager /
    View / show hidden devices / enable the NT APM Legacy device
    This may fix this issue.

    there is already a thread in here with the solution to this..(i cant be bothered finding it though)
    just go to control panel
    power options
    click the APM tab
    and make sure it's enabled

    My computer suddenly stopped powering off on shutdown. I went to control panel/Power Options Properties and enabled APM. That fixed it.

    Good Luck,

    Rob
