Thanks. We'll let you know when a new response is added.

Pressing Alt+F4 brings up the shut down menu. Then pressing U you tell to “Turn Off”. Additionally you can use R for “Restart” or S for “Standby”.

    Stretched is right to an extent. If you are at the desktop, Alt-F4 would bring up the shutdown menu, but in any other program, it would just shut it down. Your best bet would be to get some sort of Macro program and perform the following steps (these are for WinXP): Ctrl-Esc (which brings up the Start Menu) "U" (notice the underlined "u" in "Turn Off Computer") "S" for Standby - or - "U" for Turn Off - or - "R" for Restart Hope this helps!

    Also, for anyone interested... In WinXP (I think in 2000 also), there is a command called "shutdown.exe" in the C:WindowsSystem32 directory. Run it in a DOS window with no arguments to get the syntax. I don't believe it supports Stand-By, however...
