I recently had a "computer guy" re-partition my 10GB hard drive from 5 drives to a single drive.

To do this, he changed my BIOS.

Now when I Shut Down, the CPU goes Off.

I don't want this to happen, since I have my CPU, printer, scanner, monitor, etc. all hooked up to a single power source with an on/off switch for all units.

I went to BIOS setup and under Power Management could not find a way to Shut Down the CPU and keep the Power On. This was available on my old BIOS.

So, what BIOS should I ask the "computer guy" to install so that I can have this Shut Down/Power On feature?

If he doesn't have the BIOS that you suggest, how can he identify a BIOS with this capability?
