start/shutdown/shutdown doesn't shutdown my computer. i can make it hibernate and standby, but not shutdown or log off. when i try either of the last two, nothing happens. i just see the desktop as usual. need all the help i can get...
halfnoob, FWIW, Windows seems to have been plagued with shutdown problems of one sort or another since day 1. I use a standalone shutdown proggie (for convenience) called 'Slawdog' (said to work on all versions). Get it free @: http://www.slawdog.com/products/sma... among other places. Works good and I drag/dropped the icon into my quicklaunch so it'd be handy for use. HTH. Ed in Texas.
