I tried in 2 consecutive night to shutdown my comp when sleeping while watching internet TV, but in the morning i found my VISTA is keep shutting down, but never finish.
I tried to reproduce the problem with shorter time delay and run the same program, but thing is fine. It shutdown completely.

Could someone give some advise please ?

If vista isn't shutting down

If vista isn't shutting down (as with any version of windows) then it is hanging on trying to close a process or a service.

You may want to try the reg tweak to have windows auto kill programs & services that are not responding, this should keep windows from failing to shutdown again.

Let me know if you need the reg setting.

ok here you go I went ahead and made a page on the site for you. Just download the reg file and apply it and you should be good to go.
