Vista tip: ShutDown Button Tips and Secrets

Don't want to miss a single bit? Subscribe to our RSS Feed!

Windows Vista has been altered in some elements in respect to older operations systems, but actually you will learn that Vista has many more useful options which significantly simplify working on a computer, and are adjusted to the needs of the user. One of the altered things is the popular ShutDown button in the Start Menu. After you choose and click it in the Start Menu, you expect the computer to shut down. However, this will not happen but rather the computer will go into Sleep Mode. The question arises on how to really turn off the computer.

In order to adjust the Shut Down button in the Start Menu to really shut down the computer, and not for it to go into Sleep Mode, we must do the following few steps in the Control Panel. We must open the Control Panel, click on the Power Options icon, and on the left side choose the second option “Choose what the power buttons do”. A dialog box will open on the screen where we can change a few options. Here we can define what will happen when we click on the Shut Down button in the Start Menu and what will happen when we click the button for Sleep Mode. Besides this, we can define whether we want the computer to ask for a password after it has been in Sleep Mode. After we have defined all of the options as we wish, we save the settings.

If you would like for us to explain another apparently hidden Windows Vista option, feel free to contact us at contact [at] and we will be happy to answer to the best of our knowledge.
