I have seen it, so i know it can be done, but i don't know how.
How do you add the option Log Off to the other options in the Shut down dialog?
Also: i have seen a suspend option too. any ideas?
Thanks!

Hi Jagoodie:  Under settings/control panel/users you have the opportunity to set up multiple users or profiles.  Logging off of one user allows you to log on as another without rebooting.

This is done by going to "my Computer > Control Panel > Network" and choose client for microsoft networks from the list, then install the option for microsoft family login.  YOu will then have to choose to use it in the lower part of that same screen.

After you have installed the family login you need to put in multiple profiles as director suggests.

the log off option appears to come on only after installing IE4 SP1. i've done this on a few machines and it works.

with regards to suspend, this depends on the advanced power management on your computer. go to power in the control panel and check if you can put a suspend icon on your start menu. if you can't this means that your computer isn't capable of suspending.
