    turning off the PC using the Power button can be used only in cases when you
    are hard hit by crash or t-shooting. when you hit the Power button, then you
    start the PC later, it shows the message "The System Did Not Shut Down

    the 78-yr old user will find it more confusing on what to do?

    CTRL-ALT-DEL is OK - if the 78-yr old be taught the proper way to shut down
    the PC using the START button, it's better - she is still learnable.

    sad to say that Vista developers did not consider the senior citizens when
    developing this Vista - the skills transitions / migration from 2000 - XP -
    Vista is too much for senior citizens to be more confused - in short - Vista
    continously confuse the already confused memory of seniors.

    Check your BIOS settings and see if you have a "soft off" option available.
    If so, then she can use the power button as if she actually clicked Start

    All the best,

    Is your computer system ready for Vista?

    And pray why should a 78 year old be any less competent than, say for
    instance 'you'.
