Why wont my laptop turn off when connected to AC

Toshiba laptop with XP installed will not shut down with AC power plugged in like it used to. Will shut down if AC unplugged then Start, Turn Off sequence clicked both times. It used to power down on battery or with AC adapter installed. Some config issue?

Subsection--where are they?????
