    Running Vista Basic on a notebook with multiple user accounts. Since no policy editor exists on the basic verssion, from what I have found, is there another method to make configuration changes to ALL users?

    Specifically, I want to set the power settings globally for all users. MORE specifically, since Vista has buried the "Shutdown" command deeper in the STart menu then ever before, my intention is to configure the power button on the notebook to shut down the unit. However, the standard configuration is such that the pressing the power button puts the notebook into Standby which is exactly what I DON'T want.

    Any suggestions? Or obvious alternatives that I may have missed?

    Thanks in advance!
