On the windows signon screen the shutdown feature cannot be used
I don't know what I did but when I "logoff", the next screen the comes up does not have "shutdown" highlighed for me to use. I have to log back in and then go to task manager to shutdown. How do I get the original "shutdown" feature working again?

Rebooting a computer means, pressing the Reset/Restart button. But if you wish to securely restart it, click Start (Windows XP) and then "ShutDown" button, again click "Restart". There's another option when Windows XP is in Classic mode, once you press the Shutdown button, you'll see a small window showing "Shutdown", you can click the arrow button next to the "Shutdown" and then select "Restart", now click the "Ok" button to restart the system. In Windows Vista and Windows 7, click "Start", if you don't see the "Restart" button, you might be seeing the "Shutdown" button, just next to the "Shutdown" button, there's a small right arrow button, click it and select "Restart". Your system will restart.

Instead of going to the start menu, choosing shutdown,
then waiting for the computer to shut all the programs down, you can create
a shortcut on the desktop to do it quickly. You can create a shutdown,
restart, or a logoff icon on your desktop which will work a lot quicker than
using the usual buttons in the start menu. Here's how to create a shutdown shortcut on your desktop
1. Go to your blank desktop 2. Right click on a blank space and a menu will appear 3. Choose New from the menu 4. Then choose Shortcut 5. Where it says type the location of the item type in shutdown.exe -s 6. Then press next 7. Now enter a name for your icon. Mine is called SHUTDOWN NOW 8. Press next 9. The Shutdown shortcut will be on your desktop
Different combination you can type in when creating a shortcut to shutdown, restart, or logoff.
Shutsdown your computer in 30 seconds and will close all programs and ask you to save all work.
shutdown.exe -r Restarts your computer in 30 seconds.
shutdown.exe -l This one will logoff your computer back to the welcome screen where you will need to login again.
shutdown.exe -s -t 1 Shutsdown your computer in one second. the -t 1 tells it how long to wait. (one second in this case) You can put -t 10 or even -t 1120.
shutdown.exe -s -t 15 -c "Goodbye you idiot" This is my favorite code. It will shutdown in 15 seconds and have a message in the box saying "Goodbye you idiot" The -c "bla bla bla" stands for a comment.
* to stop the computer from shutting down type shutdown /a into the run box located in the start menu.. * -f will force everything to close immediately without asking to save anything.
You are using your daughter 'saved' user name and password: enter your own username and password on the signon/logon screen and if you are automatically logon, use the application 'LOGOFF' or 'SIGNOFF' function first before entering your own details. Hope it helps.
This happens when too many application are opened at the same time, and
closing them will take time because the PC's memory his full running
different applications at the same time. To avoid this close other
applications when your not using them.
