After WinXp Pro closes, logs me out, saves settings, then it takes Windows 45 secs to shut down . . . just long enough to take a nap. Anyone know how to get the shutdown process shortened.

There is a slim chance that your Paging File may be being wiped on shutdown. Just pop into your registry and look for:-
ClearPageFileAtShutdown
and make sure the Value is at "0"

20,000 is the default for XP, you can set it to any figure you like as long as it has 00 on it, ie. you can have 600 but 642 will be ignored.

Ep, glad to see you come back and tidy up...did want to ask a one day favor, I want to enhance my resume , was hoping you could make me administrator for a day, if so, take me right off since I won't be here to do anything, and don't know the slightest about the board, but it would be nice putting "served administrator osnn", if can do, THANKS
