    Hello,
    I've installed SBS 2003 and gone through most of the 'to-
    do list'. Everything seems to work fine. The only problem
    is that I don't have the option to turn-off or restart the
    computer when I click on 'shut-down'. The options are
    grayed-out. I have to hit the power button on the server,
    then SBS says it is shutting down and powers off. I later
    read something and noticed it said I should activate the
    server before installing additional client licenses, when
    in fact I installed the extra client licenses before I
    activated the server. Will this make a difference? Does
    anyone have any ideas regarding this?
    Thanks,
    DRM

    Sounds like a permission problem. I assume you are
    logging on with a admin account.
    Try to add a new admin account and use that to logon and
    figure out if there is a difference.
    Just a suggestion taken out of not knowing if your
    problem is a known problem...

    maybe i'm being a bit simplistic here, but have you chosen a reason to shut
    it down, from the drop down list. when you do that the button is not (or
    should not) be greyed out
