RE: Vista shut down problem
You can do a shutdown by just going into the Start Icon, bring up the Start
Menu, looking down their where you have the power button (inside the start
menu) and the lock button, just next to the lock on the right side is an
arrow, click it, then select shutdown.
Alternatively, you can make the sleep button become the shutdown button by
go throught these steps.
Start Menu, Control Panel, click System and Maintenance, click Power
Options, (in the classic view, just click Power Options), under what radio
button you have selected (like Balanced, High Performance...) click Change
Plan Settings, click Change Advance Settings, a window pops up, Find and
expand Power buttons and lid, expand Start menu power button, and click sleep
and choose shutdown.
Does that help?
