    I recently tried out one of the shutdown shortcuts spoken about on various parts of this website...

    the whole %system32%\windows\shutdown.exe -s or whatever (I can't remember the specifics

    anyway, when I use it, instead of totally turning off my computer like Start->Turn off-> Shutdown does, it goes to the "it is now safe to turn off your computer" screen

    how do I get it not to?

    don't think my bios has that option - I've got a really cheap mobo with only the very basic options - which hasn't been messed with since I bought it.
    Ah well no great loss
    prefer to hit power button
    ;-)

    I may not have made this clear before, but when I click Start -> Turn off -> Shut down, the computer actually shuts down by itself. And I'm wondering why this doens't happen with the shortcut...surely acpi is enabled if it normally turns off completely from the start menu

    It's the shorcut that closes down that way. Don't know if there is a way around it.

    Hipster is correct (as usual) . If you use the shortcut you will have to power down manually. Someone posted an alternate shortcut a while back that purported to go all the way to power down, but I don't know anyone who got it to work.

    My head has just gone like grinders avatar. :eek:

    I use that shortcut because it reminds me to turn off the power switch at the plug.
