I haven't got this facility currently enabled on my system, but right clicking on the Start button and using Customise to delete the Log Off link is also available (IIRC!)

thats the one I want but didn't see the option when I right clicked mine - will look again

  Seth Haniel 08:19 05 Dec 2007

yep that did the trick ;)

That option still not in the drop down list ???!!!

  HCOOH 09:05 05 Dec 2007

I do not have that option either, so not so strange.

If you want to be Idle like me create a Stop Button

On the Windows desktop, right-click and select New and Shortcut.
If you are using Windows XP, in the command line path, type the following exactly:
SHUTDOWN -s -t 01

Please note the spaces before the hyphens and after "t".

Click Next, name the shortcut and click Finish. Now, to shutdown Windows, just double-click this shortcut.

By the way, speaking of shutting down your computer, here's another handy trick. Just consider today's tip a twofer!

You can restart Windows without going through the entire boot or start process. This is pretty handy to know when you make changes and want to see if they work. Simply click Start and Shutdown and then, hold down the Shift key after selecting Restart. Click OK.buttton
