Windows 7 : Change What Shutdown / Power down button does

Windows 7 Now allows you to change the behavior of  Power button action right from the Start menu. No registry hacks no control panel. Just go to taskbar and start menu properties. Select Start menu tab and you will find the option to change the power button function there. You can change the behavior of power down button to

  • Switch User
  • Log OFF
  • Lock
  • Restart
  • Hibernate
  • Shutdown

This is a good option if somebody tries to shut down from power down button and it locks the computer nicely. 😉
