Iam currently working on a new build for this 790i mother board.
Question
When I go Start>shutdown> and click shutdown, the machine turns off to a certain point then I have to press the power switch to shut down further(It is now safe to shutdown windows) as per instruction of a message.
How can get this to shut down all the way with out having to hit the power switch to do so.
i have Win XP Home installed as an OS.

Try going in to your BIOS and check your shutdown settings, remember to save any changes.
You could also check in your Power Options under system settings.

The only thing close is ACPI.
I enabled it and disabled it, no change.

http://aumha.org/win5/a/shtdwnxp.php#powerdown I'm not sure you read the link previously provided by garmanma.

Shutdown issues are hard to troubleshoot...various causes, only some of which are known.
