Vista : default in Turn Off box

  CDL 14:57 05 May 2009

Hello !
How can I change the default in the Turn Off option box Vista/Ultimate). It is currently set to 'sleep' - which I never want it to do and I have to scroll down to 'Shut Down' !
I want to set it to shut down .

Buried a long way in power settings -
In Control Panel/Power Options, select Change Plan Settings for your current plan, select Change Advanced Power Settings, expand Power Buttons and Lid, choose Start Menu Power Button and select Shut Down instead of Sleep.
