Win xp.
Suddenly my PC wont switch off or re-start from the desk top. Have been re-installing numerous programmes onto new hard drive. Been OK for last 5 days, but to- night no go. Hopefully it will switch off from power button as that is selected in power options. It will standby from desk top.
Have I switched something off by accident. Thanks.

go into control panel and d\click power options. Click on the advanced tab and choose shut down when you press the power button. TT
