There are two new power buttons on the Windows Vista start menu that behave differently than in previous versions of Windows. The main button, that looks like a power button actually puts your computer to sleep, not really turning it completely off. The other button locks your computer. I personally do not like putting my computer to sleep. I would rather turn it off completely to save some power and save some money on my electric bill when I am sleeping.
Follow the steps below to customize these button to work how you want them to work:
- Click on the Start Menu and type in Power Options and hit Enter.
- Click on Choose what power buttons do on the side menu.
- Configure the buttons.
- Hit Save Changes.
