  1. This may be very easy for most of you, but I am having a problem, that needs
    to be solved.

    Some how it suddenly started that when I try to shut off my lap top with Vista
    operating system, the default appears to be "Sleep" mode. in the options window.
    I would like to change that to "Shut off" mode.

    Please let me know how I can achieve that?

    Many thanks.

    Best regards,

    Right click your taskbar and go to properties. The option to change your power button action should be there.

    In order to change your options, complete the following steps:

    Go to Control Panel \ Power Options \ Change Plan Settings \ Change Advanced Power Settings. Once you get to this dialog, browse down to “Power buttons and lid." From here, you can change the options:

    Power button action – Changes the hardware power button action

    Start menu power button – Changes the power button on the Start Menu

    I hope this helps.

    You guys are wonderful.
    I wish I knew that much. I really do not know how to find anything in these embedded menus.
    I guess that I am getting old.
    Many thanks for helping this confused person.
    Best regards,
