Newt's link should explain it:
Reformatted..Computer now says "It is now safe to shut off your computer" instead of.
Looks like your PC is non-ACPI compliant, so you want to disable the APM feature (Edit: note Step 5, if it is applicable, you should get shutdown without seeing the "safe to turn off your computer" screen).
