a) How can I turn off / hibernate my computer without going through Start and then chosing an icon. Can I shortcut the ikon to my toolbar?

b) Sometimes, for no reason that I undertand I am given a Hibernate option instead of Stand By when I Turn off my computer. How can I Hibernate at will instead of having to Stand By?

Most keyboards now offer this facility, usually a row of three or four buttons along the top, just click the corresponding one. j.

right click the start button/explore and navigate to "c:/windows/system32/shutdown.exe"

right click it and "send to/desktop create shortcut" i think.

I've sorted this out - but what is the difference between Stand By and Hibernate?

I'm impressed - this is really clever but I'd really like to Hibernate - not shut down completely. Any suggestions?

not sure how to create a shortcut to this one im afraid.

this works well though:

first make sure hibernation is enabled in control panel/power options/hibernate then:

press ctrl+esc then press u

the shut down box will appear.then just press h

I am running Office 2003 but cannot access files in My Documents or select them from FILE.

An error message WORD CANNOT OPEN THIS DOC TEMPLATE (C:\ Program File ...\ Startup\dgn.word.dot).

When I close WORD there is an error message THE FILE NORMAL ALREADY EXISTS – although I have unselected the “Prompt to save Normal Template” in TOOLS / Options / Save.

I have not previously had problems with Office 2003. However I did a McAfee Quick Clean prior to the problem manifesting and may have cleaned more than I intended. However, would that explain WORD not reinstalling properly?

I have tried several Restore Dates – no luck. I can create new MS WORD documents – but not access them (except in Wordpad or MS WORKS).

Any suggestions?

Go to Control Panel then Power Options then Advanced, second panel from the bottom turn the option on 'When I press the Power Button on My Computer' to Hibernate or what ever you want. Then when you press the Power Button on your computer case, your computer will enter Hibernate mode or in my case Shut Down.
