    a while back I found a tweak here on how to create a desktop shortcut for restarting XP, I wonder how I could do the same with hibernate, shutdown, and standby?

    a restart button on your desktop:

    1. Create a shortcut (Right-click on desktop, select New > Shortcut).

    2. For location, type the following:

    shutdown -r -t 0

    3. Click Next, enter a name for the shortcut ("Restart" is appropriate), and click Finish

    and for the shutdown shortcut:

    1. Create a shortcut (Right-click on desktop, select New > Shortcut).

    2. For location, type the following:

    C:\WINDOWS\system32\tsshutdn.exe 0 /DELAY:0 /POWERDOWN

    3. Click Next, enter a name for the shortcut ("Shutdown" is appropriate), and click Finish

    Dunno bout the hibernation shortcut...

    If you have applied Servicepack1 shutdown -s -t 0 will also shut off your computer completely. ( other options -l to logoff , -f to force running applications to close).
    No options for standby or hibernation in the inbuild shutdown utilities of XP as far as I know. You can get a small thirdparty program that has these options at :
