    Check the first reply... it guided you to Help and Support for
    "shutdown".

    Or did you want someone to come over and click your mouse for you too?

  7. Hello,

    Thank you for your post.

    By default, Windows puts your computer to sleep when you click the Power
    button. However, you can change the default setting so that clicking the
    button causes your computer to sleep, hibernate, or shut down. (Any changes
    you make will also apply to the physical power button on the computer
    itself.) To change the default setting:

    1. Open Control Panel -> Power Options.

    2. On the 'Select a power plan' page, click 'Change plan settings' under
    the selected plan.

    3. On the 'Change settings for the plan' page, click 'Change advanced power
    settings'.

    4. On the 'Advanced settings' tab, expand 'Power buttons and lid', expand
    'Start menu power button', and then do one of the following:
    If you are using a mobile PC, click On battery or Plugged in (or both),
    click the arrow, and then click Sleep, Hibernate, or Shut Down.
    If you are using a desktop computer, click Setting, click the arrow, and
    then click Sleep, Hibernate, or Shut Down.

    5. Click OK, and then click Save changes.

    I hope this helps. Thanks.

    That's the one that works. I had gotten there from the first clue "power Options" but couldn't remember how I had gotten there. When you change the setting from "sleep" to "shut down", then you click "apply", then "OK" and the whole thing disappears. Another example of non-intuitive Vista. You had to click on SIX different things to dig down to the actual setting from the Power Options page.

    No problem.. but you really should learn to accept help when it is given in good
    faith.. If you still don't understand what to do after help is given, then a
    polite request for more detailed help would be in order. I am glad you did get
    the detailed instructions you apparently needed. I still think the tutorial link
    I posted might also be of help.
