The shortcut works to a certain extent but it does not do the full software shutdown that it used to do in Windows 98, I have to push the on/off button to completely shut it down, is there any way to make it shut down altogether.
I suspect that there is a BIOS setting somewhere that needs altering, if Windows shuts down but your PC does not power-off. Are you sure it is not going into a suspend or hibernate mode? Check also that the Power settings in Control Panel are set correctly.
ßéŁâ, I've tried that prog in the past, may be the scripting I have going on at bootup/shutdown but it wouldn't work. There is the option of 'switch off' a remarkable prog that will do more than shutdown, it will lock the machine, restart, hibernate, standby or log off. click here and download it. You have to be aware though, if you have scripts running it will not work correctly.
you may have to press ALT+F4 twice if you have something else running, once you get the shutdown menu, just press U+ENTER, this will shutdown your computer,
dont know if this is exactly what you want but it is quick and saves you bothering with the mouse, you can do the same by pressing the windows key on your keyboard, pressing the up cursor once, enter, then U+ENTER
