change default behavior at shutdown

Discussion in 'Windows Vista General Discussion' started by David Sherman, Apr 26, 2006.

  1. When I shutdown the computer, the default option is sleep.

    How do I change it to shutdown?

    Go into Control Panel, type


    in the Search box, click Change Power Button Behavior. I haven't actually
    done it, but it looks like that's the way to go.

  5. Essentially both answers are right. Hit the Start orb, click the arrow
    that's on the Power button and select "Shutdown".

    Thanks for the tip Andre. But I sent him to Control Panel first because when
    I type "pow" or "shut" or even "power options" at the bottom of the Start
    menu, I don't get a link to the power options dialog box. In fact I mostly
    get links to newsgroup posts. Should I be seeing Control Panel icons in that
    Start Menu search? If so, is there some setting I can change to get back to
    that behavior?

  8. Thanks for the input. I have a very unstable machine or things that
    you describe weren't installed.

    I will revisit this solution on the next version of the CTP.
