Running XP pro w/sp3, after a changed my router one of my three active partitions (3 HDD's) the one I use all the time is slow to shutdown.
I changed out a old Verizon DSL route for a Linksys wireless router (using the wired connection) and by doing so the system is slow to shutdown. I remember reading something about network conflicts connected to the O/S, but don't remember the terms which makes searching impossible.

I use static IP addresses for my three PC's and two TiVo DVR's which are on the network. No firewalls. This happened right after I swapped routers.

When not in use, turn off the juice.

Think of someone else instead of just yourself. There is far more to it than your utility bill.

Not even the firewall built into Windows? What happens to the shutdown time if you have that enabled?
