Screen Frozen

Archived from groups: microsoft.public.windowsme.general (More info?)

Appreciate some help, have Millenium ME and screen has frozen on "It is now
safe to turn off your computer". However, computer won't turn off or turn on.
Tried C/Alt/Delete, and holding down turn on button for 10 secs. No luck.
Appreciate any tips. Thanks.

    Maybe the on/off button is faulty.

    What happens if you switch off (and on again!) at your power socket (pull
    the plug)?

    > "It is now safe to turn off your computer"

    requires a "Power Down". C-A-D will not cause any response when that message
    is showing.
