Default Power question

I am running Windows XP on my computer. Whenever the power goes out, it automatically restarts itself. I want my computer to turn off when the power goes off, not restart itself. I was under the impression that Windows XP could do that. Am I mistaken? Or is there something I need to switch in order for this to happen? Thanks for your help!

Hey Rudy,
Noticed you had no replies so I looked into your question for you. Open your Control panel and go to System. Click Advanced, then "Startup and Recovery/Settings". Uncheck "automatically restart" under system failure. Hopefully that works.
If you dont have a good battery pack/ power supply, you should invest in one. Power outages are bad for computers.

You should invest in a UPS if you can afford it.
