xpepm hangs system

I can successfully shutdown using shutdown/fba commands but system just
hangs if I use xpepm.

xpepm -shutdown/-restart/-hibernate all have the same result.

Running with SP2. I've got an ACPI BIOS and have included ACPI PC
component in my image.

Any ideas?

richmo,

Sounds like an interesting software bug unless it is a hardware problem.
I've never had any problems with xpepm on any of my image.

Is this on Winlogon or Minlogon image? Try the running tool on Winlogon image.

Basically, xpepm will call to NtShutdownSystem (ntdll.dll) to perform reboot or shutdown.
Any chance for you to create a small simple app with one line of code that will call to the NtShutdownSystem?

If the problem is repro with that simple app and, especially, if you can repro it on the device under XP Pro - you found an
interesting bug of XP on x86 platform.
Then you may want to report it to Microsoft.

PS. Try to switch to Standard PC and see how the xpepm behaves on the image with the standard HAL.
