IFD 2.99 hangs on automatic shutdown

Postby AGH1965 » Sat Jul 09, 2016 7:08 am

If I use the "Shutdown When Completed" option, then Image for DOS 2.99 hangs on the automatic shutdown. At the top of the screen I see some graphical artifacts and the system doesn't respond to mouse and keyboard. Therefore I need to force shutdown by using the power switch, which is something I don't like to do. The "Reboot When Completed" option works fine though. Any ideas how to fix this? Maybe some BIOS setting? My computer has a MSI P55-GD65 mainboard.

it uses APM so ensure that is enabled.

Thanks. There is no APM option in the BIOS setup, but there is an ACPI option and that was already enabled.

acpi isn't supported due to the large amount of code it would take to do a
simple shutdown.
