hey, i'm pretty new to vista and being used to xp i keep clicking the orange button on the start menu with the power symbol on to turn off by accident. but oh no... it doesn't do that, it just f***s up the computer. goes into like a standby mode from which the only way to turn it back on is to unplug the mains power and plug it back in after a few seconds. keyboard is unresponsive, power button/reset button on machine don't do anything and the power light just blinks until you do that.

what is that button ment to do?

why doesn't it <insert answer to first question>?

can i make the button turn the computer off like it should do (given any reasonable logic)?

thanks for the reply, it doesn't record any faults because it just records as a unexpected shutdown and no other additional information so doesn't send an error report. and the link is to do with the power button on the machine, its the orange 'standby' button on the start menu i'm tired of.
