    It starts the exact same shutdown sequence as clicking Start -> Turn Off
    Computer -> Turn Off.

    Tell you what roger. open control panel, then power options, then
    advanced and tell me what you think the option called

    "when I press the power button on my computer"

    would do when its set to shutdown, which I believe is the default for an
    XP installation.

    It seems that *you* can't read. You don't need the screen to hit
    Ctrl-Alt-Delete twice.
