I set some group policies.  Now when users need to shutdown, they must log off first tehn the shutdown option appears.  I have looked and looked at all the group policies but can not seem to find the one that affects this situation?

Please help.

maybe look at this setting in your GPO's: user configuration\administrative templates\start menu and taskbar\remove and prevent access to the shutdown command

Use RSOP (MMC > resultant set of policy) to see if any policy removes the shutdown button.

i did a google search on RSOP.  It is beyond my current comprehension.  Could you provide some suggestion?  I have checked the GPO and the shutdown feature has not been configured.

Policies are applied in order (LSD Overdose):

Local
Site
Domain
Ou

First the local policy will be applied, than the site policies etc. Sometimes the same setting is applied on different levels with different values. Then it's not easy to find out in wich policy a setting is defined. That's when RSOP becomes a handy tool.

To prevent you from having to check every policy for a certain setting you can use the RSOP. This tool can be found in the MMC (start > run > mmc.exe). Add the "resultant set of policies" snap-in. Right click the tool and click "generate RSOP data". Now you can browse to the setting that you want to check.
If you found the setting scroll right to see wich policy defined it.

i checked through RSOP but do not see the user configuration\administrative templates\start menu and taskbar\remove and prevent access to the shutdown command.  In fact there are no items displayed from user configuration\administrative templates\start menu and taskbar\ although there is on the GPO from the computer and username I checked.  (ie.  remove Links and Access to Windows Update).

How can I restore it so the shutdown menu reappears?

You can try two options:

- Confugure it in the local computer policy (start -> run -> gpedit.msc)
- Configure it on an OU (active directory users and computers)

I would prefere using OU's because it's less work.
