    Hey everyone! I'm new to these forums and pretty new to Mac too. I recently got a MBP 15.5 inch this January and I installed Windows XP SP2 with Bootcamp.
    Things have mostly been running fine but whenever I try to shutdown the computer in XP, it gets stuck at the blue screen that says "Windows is shutting down" and it just stays there forever. I dislike having to do a hard shutdown and was wondering if anyone knew any possible solutions. Sometimes it will also lag when I standby/try to renew my session.

    Try updating to SP3, and also Running Apple Software Update inside Windows.

    You did remember to install the drivers from your Leopard/Snow Leopard DVD right?
