allan,
As I just wrote to Stephen, this is how my system is set by default,
already.  Isn't that the default for most people, without their doing
anything?

1. go to control panel.



2. press p until "power options" and hit enter.



3. for desktop user, you will see 4 tabs that is power schemes, advanced,
hibernate and UPS. but for laptop user, you will have
more. press ctrl+tab to "advanced tab".



4. now, press tab until you here



"Power buttons, When I press the power button on my computer:" combo box



you can use arrow up/down to change the selection. the selections are:

hibernate

shutdown



so, for this purpose, you must choose the fifth option that is shutdown.



5. after you have make your desire choice, press tab to apply button and hit
space bar.



6. finally tab to ok and press enter.

Hi,

I'm afraid I don't understand what you say, below, about the method you
figured out for yourself.  Going to the control panel, and a combo box, and
having a button shut down?  i don't get it.  Could you try to rephrase this?
Now you've made me really curious to find out this possibly helpful
workaround.  Also, by the way, I didn't know this had started with being in
an emergency cituation because Jaws had stopped.
Daniel

Daniel

this thread was started by me and i had originally asked this question
because jaws had stopped talking.

i found the most helpful reply to be going to power settings in the control
panel and going to the advanced tab and using the combo box to have the
power button to shut down for me.
