Case/Mobo Shutdown On OS Shutdown? Tags: New Build Cases Computers Shutdown Systems Last response: March 8, 2013 3:36 AM in Systems Share GoodTimes March 8, 2013 3:17:38 AM Hi everyone, I just built my first computer and am curious how I can, if possible, make my case and mobo shutdown/restart when those options are chosen from my OS. Currently I can choose shutdown or restart in Windows 8 and the OS will shutdown, but the case remains on and I have to hold down the power button to get the actual computer to shut off. Is this a bios thing? I haven't been able to find anything about it in the manual. Any help would be great!
