    Hi Benny,
    the shortcut for shutdown is :
    %windir%\System32\shutdown.exe -s -t 0
    logoff :
    %windir%\System32\shutdown.exe -l -t 0

    Open a command prompt and type shutdown.exe ? and you will see all available switches. If you use the shutdown shortcut with Servicepack 1 installed it will completely shutdown your computer, if not you will end up at the screen where it says 'It is now save to switch off your computer' or something of that kind.
    Don't know if there is a shortcut to switch users, never heard of it.
