Found this elsewhere if you wamt to give it a try:


Windows not shutting down or not restarting could be tied to several factors. For example, the presence of Roxio Easy CD Creator or Direct CD can cause this problem. Installing the updated version of the driver for Easy CD Creator from roxio.com can fix this problem.

See the Microsoft knowledge base article q311806 for more details.

Another possible cause is that Windows XP was installed with the wrong power management hardware abstraction layer (HAL). Verify that power management is enabled in the BIOS. Open the Power Options applet from the Control Panel, click the APM tab, and turn on Enable Advanced Power Management support. If you don't see this option, the system is likely configured with the ACPI HAL and your problem lies elsewhere.

You can also reinstall Windows XP and manually select the ACPI HAL during installation to overcome potential power management issues with hardware (such as video cards) that does not support APM.
