Create One-Click Shutdown and Reboot Shortcuts:

First, create a shortcut on your desktop by right-clicking on the desktop, choosing New, and then choosing Shortcut. The Create Shortcut Wizard appears. In the box asking for the location of the shortcut, type shutdown. After you create the shortcut, double-clicking on it will shut down your PC.
But you can do much more with a shutdown shortcut than merely shut down your PC. You can add any combination of several switches to do extra duty, like this:
shutdown -r -t 01 -c "Rebooting your PC" Double-clicking on that shortcut will reboot your PC after a one-second delay and display the message "Rebooting your PC." The shutdown command includes a variety of switches you can use to customize it. Table 1-3 lists all of them and describes their use.
I use this technique to create two shutdown shortcuts on my desktop—one for turning off my PC, and one for rebooting. Here are the ones I use:
shutdown -s -t 03 -c "Bye Bye m8!" shutdown -r -t 03 -c "Ill be back m8 ;)!"
Switch What it does
-s Shuts down the PC.
-l Logs off the current user.
-t nn Indicates the duration of delay, in seconds, before performing the action.
-c "messagetext" Displays a message in the System Shutdown window. A maximum of 127 characters can be used. The message must be enclosed in quotation marks.
-f Forces any running applications to shut down.
-r Reboots the PC.

I have a dell c521 desktop I bought it from a rental place I do not have a reboot disc I've called dell suport they were no help is there any keyboard configureations to get this rebooted

***Using the Start Menu
  • Press a Windows key (the ones with the Windows symbol on as shown right), this will open up the Start Menu.
  • Use the cursor keys (the ones with arrows on) to highlight 'Turn off Computer' and press Enter to select it
  • A dialog box will open. Use the cursor keys to to highlight 'Shutdown computer', 'Turn off' or whatever your version of Windows says, and press Enter again.

***Using the 'three finger salute'
Hold down Ctrl and Alt, and press Delete.
Windows 2000 and XP Home Edition users will be presented with a dialog box with buttons on:
  • · Use the cursor keys to select the 'Shut Down' button and use Enter to select it.
  • · Select 'Shut down' from the list using the cursor keys and press Enter one more time.

In other versions of Windows the Task Manager will open:
  • · Hold down Alt and press U to open the 'Shut Down' menu.
  • · Use the cursor keys to highlight 'Turn Off' and press Enter.

***Hit Alt F4 'till you can't any more
The final method of shutting down that I will explain here is to hold down the Alt key and press F4 repeatedly. This will close every application that is open on Windows and eventually will close Windows itself. You may be asked if you want to save files by some programs, if so use the cursor keys and Enter to get past these dialog boxes.

How to shut down dell inspiron 530 computer - the button only takes computer to sleep mode

I assume you use Windows Vista.....
In vista the default action of the power button is configured to sleep mode..
So to shutdown the PC you can press "Start - right arrow - right arrow - right arrow - Enter", or you can navigate to the same using the mouse & selecting shutdown from the list besides the lock icon.
You can also change the power button configuration this way goto " Start-Control Panel-System and Maintenance-Power options-change plan settings (under the current plan you are using) - change advanced power settings - Power buttons and lid - Start menu power button" click on settings and select shutdown, apply & save the settings and close this window.
Now you can just click the power button to shutdown your computer.

Problem on pc

Sounds like this is an issue with Microsoft Communicator. I would run the hotfix for Microsoft Office Comminicator. It s not a big one and should not take too long. The hot fix can be found at:

There are detailed instructions on how to laod the fix but if you have ever done an MS hotfix it is pretty standard.
