Has anyone else experienced this? When I want to shut down XP it can take 2-3 minutes before the computer shuts down from the time I tell it to. It's pretty annoying when I'm trying to restart the computer after updates or loading programs. I'm guessing it's motherboard related and not XP. I have a Intel 845PE mobo and come to think of it started after bios update a while back but I can be sure that's the problem since Intel doesn't give you a way to go back to older bioses.
