    On the laptop I go to Start Shutdown - It reboots...

    Ideas?

    Um, that's by design.

    :smoker:

    Does this happen under another user profile?

    Can you do the following from a command line?

    shutdown -r

    I had a similar situation once, couldn't get the Start - Shutdown to do anything at all. Steevo suggested using a hex editor to look at the actual shortcut itself and see what was going on. Elected just to re-load the OS instead because I'm lazy ;)

    I will have to try under a different profile and via command and see what I come up with.

    Thanks
