Windows Me Shutdown

My peuter will not shut down completely on shutdown.
The mouse stays lit and the screen has a blue hase on the monitor. I have to cut the power to shut it down overnight.

Robert has a more detailed trouble shoot and if you are lucky maybe this will work as it did for me. Go to device manager under PCI adapter properties uncheck Allow the computer to turn off this device to save power. This probably would be the easiest solution and if you are lucky yours.
