Running XP home. I can't ever do a restart, it will always shut down. Even\nif I try to log off or switch users it takes\na long time to close out and then shuts down. On my son's account however\nyou can log off or switch rather quickly or do\na restart no problem. Posted this a few months ago and about the only\nreplys I got were to check the power setting\nwhich didn't seem to matter.
