    I get it where I can change the sleep button on the start menu to shutdown.
    Any way to change the lock button to something else, such as sleep? Or
    hibernate? Thanks!

    Not that I know of, but that could be a good feature

    I miss the old way of logging off. Like the opportunity to cancel in case
    hitting shutdown as a slip of the mouse. And being able to easily switch
    users or log off or shutdown without having to get handcramps trying to hit
    a little menu that is past the options I never use.

    AMEN!

    This is poor design if you ask me. I don't get the logic behind it at
    all. It's overly difficult just to do a simple thing like log off.

    You can get the classic shutdown menu by pressing alt & F4,
    any help?,

    Not really.

    When I am sure enough that I want to shut down to hit Alt-F4, I may as well
    hit the shutdown on the menu. It is the accidental slips of the mouse that
    leave me with a sleeping computer that I don't like.

    As for using Alt-F4 for closing Windows, that only works if everything else
    is closed or minimized. Otherwise it just closes the current window. And
    it is a very awkward keyboard combination. This is just one of the few
    things about Vista that I think they really got wrong. Well, actually I
    have a whole list of things but this is one of only a handful that I think
    is significant.

    If you change to button to shutdown, the only slip you could do is lock the
    computer.
