hi all,

when i press the 'windows' button to shutdown, instead of seeing the 'shutdown' option, i see a 'hibernate' option...............why? :confused:

That's just the way M$ likes it. You can change that pretty easily if you want.

Click: Start - Control Panel - System and Security
Under Power Options click: Change what the power buttons do
Change it there and save changes.

You mean the default button in the start menu is Hibernate?
You can change this easily too :D
Right click on an empty spot on the taskbar>>Properties>>Start Menu>>"Power Button Action": Shutdown.
Click OK.
