    Around 90% of the time that i try to restart windows xp it stops on the
    screen with the blue bar moving across the screen and the blue bar stops.
    The i press the restart button and it goes on the a screen asking if i want
    to start in safe mode or continue starting normaly. I start normally and the
    same happends. This goes on forever, but when i turn the power off at the
    socket in the wall and start it again it always boots up with no problems.
    Does anyone have this probel or know how to fix it?
    thanks

    Check the APM (Advanced Power Management) section.
