How do I configure Windows 2000 so that when I shut down, it prompts me with a "It's now safe to turn off the computer" screen instead of turning off the computer automatically?


With Windows 95, I was able to banish this "feature" by disabling Energy Saver Mode in the CMOS setup...but in Windows 2000, that makes no difference.  No Advanced Power Management tab appears in Control Panel's Power Options, so there's nothing to configure there, and there are few other power-related options in CMOS.  The computer itself is a circa-2000 Compaq Deskpro EN.


I suppose I'm an anomaly, but I've always found it insulting to be revoked of the ability to turn off my own computer.
