Shutdown problems with XPe


A

AS

Hi,
I have an XPe system with the Transmeta processor... I have the Advanced
Config and power interface (ACPI) component, NT APM etc components also
included in my image.. When I use the Start->Shutdown->Shutdown system, my
Windows system gives me messages, "Saving user settings" and then "Windows
is shutting down" but it never really shuts down but just hangs at this
point. If I do a restart, it works fine.
I had posted this earlier and Slobodan suggested I use the xpepm utility to
see if the system does allow shutdown.. When I use xpepm, I can restart and
suspend, but when I use shutdown, it just hangs there and freezes as if its
really shutdown.. but I can still see my Dos window etc...

Now to test whether the h/w supports shutdown, I connected a hard drive with
Win 2000 installed on it and boot from there and try to shutdown and it
works fine... For some reason it doesn't work with XPe..
I think I'm missing some useful component...

Any ideas..

Thanks,
Regards,

Are you sure that your system is ACPI compliant?

Only components you need is ACPI Multiprocessor PC or ACPI Uniprocessor PC.

You don't need NT APM for ACPI compliant system.

Well I looked at the system specifications for the h/w, and it says :
"Supports power saving modes including Normal/standby/suspend, APM 1.1"
So I guess it means it might not be ACPI compliant.... In that case, what
component should I add, to let the system shutdown properly as well as
enable it to suspend/standby...

Thanks,

I don't know since we are using only ACPI compliant devices.

But you should rely on TAP results to see what drivers are missing in your
build.
If XP can shutdown your device XPe can do the same.

Running tap.exe on my device using Win2K gives me the ACPI device listing..

Snippet taken out of the tap.exe file
*******************************************

Category: ACPI_HAL
Device: Microsoft ACPI-Compliant System
Category: ACPI
Device: ACPI Fixed Feature Button
Device: ACPI Power Button
Category: Root
Device: Advanced Configuration and Power Interface (ACPI) PC

************************************************

Also I noticed that the device does seem to be turned off, coz my hard drive
is powered off, and the mouse etc also stops moving... The only problem is
that I can still see the display that says windows is shutting down instead
of actually turning this screen OFF.. I tried using the Standard PC
component instead of the ACPI PC and that works Ok by giving me the screen
"Its now safe to turn off your PC", but I lose all options for
suspend/standby which I don't want to do. If I use ACPI Uniprocessor PC
component my device does not boot up and I know it shouldn't..

Any more ideas on what else I should try...

Thanks,
