    Does the shortcut on the keyboard use a Marco??
    I use a shortcut on the desktop. Just create a icon and set the target
    to
    C:\ShutDown\shutdown.exe -u
    Works without asking if I want to.

    When I was installing windows XP there was this option (but i didnt really
    payed enough attention) that said something like if i wanted some shortcut to
    shutdown my computer without asking for my confirmation before doing it, and
    it also said that i could turn this shortcut off. So my question how do I
    turn it off?Sometimes I press the button by mistake and the computer shuts
    down, by the way, i dont even know which button is.. i guess its CTRL +
    Something. Thanks for your answer anyway. And I dont know what a Marco is,
    sorry, english is not my first language. Thanks again.

    Turah,
    No problem, your English is better than my Spanish. What you have is a
    Shortcut Key that got created. I do not know how to find which one is
    doing it. To understand what I mean about a short cut you can look at
    one of your Icons on your desktop. Right click your mouse on an icon
    and then left click properties. You can see what the Target is, what
    the Start in is and then the third line says Shortcut Key. You can set
    any icon to have a shortcut key. Just enter in the Shortcut key a
    combination of keys and then when those keys are entered the program
    for that icon will be executed. There must be a way to find out what
    shortcut keys are used for what but I do not know how to find that
    out. Maybe someone on the group can advise you. Meanwhile do not worry
    about your English, It is better than mine.
    Tony

    Hi Tony,
    I´m sorry I didn´t reply before. I found out what was wrong, it had
    something to do with saving energy at video properties (screen saver
    options). Anyway, thanks for your replies and your shotcuts' tips.
    ByeS :)
    Turah.
