Default no auto-shutdown

This is actually a software problem, but I thought I'd put it here anyway. I have an older Intel Celeron that I'm thinking of selling, but before I do I need to get it to shutdown automatically again. If I keep doing it manually, then that's hard on the....hardware, over time, right? It might have been spyware that I downloaded that's preventing the auto shutdown, but none of my anti spyware programs are helping. Any ideas?

Oh that's right- reformat. That should solve the problem, too. Thanks.
