Vista has a different shutdown process than XP. What are you trying to accomplish? ... T

I am trying to have this dialog come up when I click on Shut down  using the classic view of the start menu.

It is Vista so you cannot do that. If you want the classic view to shut down, go into the power manager (system tray icon), advanced options, power and lid options and set the start menu option for what you wish. I set mine to shut down by default instead of hibernate (or whatever the default was). ... Thinkpads_User

Thanks.  Basically I hated using the drop down list to choose shut down, this solves the problem.  Thanks
