OK this is the problem: My Gateway Laptop takes too long too shut down, I just bought it a month ago. When I select shutdown (with no opened programs) the computer just stands there, it does slow down (when I press ctrl+alt+del nothing shows up), about a minute later the computer does shutdown showing the windows closing... process (normal blue screen) The thing is, this just happens when the laptop is running on batteries which is quite annoying. Is this normal? well thats all THANKS in advance. Here's some of the specs:

Processor: Pentium M 730 1.6Ghz 533mhz FSB (Centrino)
RAM: 512 Mb
HD: 80Gb
Graphics: ATI X700

What programs have you installed? Anti virus or other protection? List what programs you have installed please.

It can be caused by conflicts in the programs, this is why I am asking.

Or, if you installed some of your data from your old computer, perhaps it was infected.

What have you been downloading??? Anything 'FREE'? Free screensaver, free music and the like? Is Kazaa software on this computer?

Do you visit Ask Jeeves?

turnip gave you a great resource, check it out. And also this:

I'll be looking for your response.

Ok... The computer came with Norton Internet Security 2005 installed, After purchased I installed office 2003, some games, msn messenger, Omega ATI Drivers, Firefox, Macromedia Studio, and i think thats all. The only data I passed from my old computer were songs but i scanned the old computer regularly. I havent installed free screensavers or similar (I dont think its spyware or adware, already checked though) Ill give a try to http://www.aumha.org/win4/a/shutdown.htm to see if anyhting works. I do have hibernation enabled though the problem happens when shutting down.. forgot to say I also noticed that when I select Stand By the graphics look degraded / choppy... i dont care about it but i dont know if it could be related. Thanks
