Personally, I find the whole idea of clicking "Start" to shutdown somewhat counter-intuitive, and could somebody tell me why I have to use the "three-finger salute" to get my login screen in XP Pro? Once I power up, what else could I possibly want to do with my computer? It should automatically default to the login screen. Just my two-cents' (Canadian) worth.

Grant -----Original Message----- From: Daniel Emory Sent: Friday, March 10, 2006 9:56 AM To: Framers List Cc: Free Framers List Subject: OT: Unbelievable On-Line Help Stupidity I was helping a friend who'd just acquired her first computer, an E-Machine with Windows XP. I was demonstrating how to get help, and showed how she could type in a search phrase and get a list of all the help topics containing that phrase. So, to demonstrate how to properly shut down the computer, I entered the search phrase "Turn Off." Sure enough, all the help topics containing that phrase appeared, and I selected the"Turn Off The Computer" topic. Here are the instructions which appeared under that topic: "Click Start, click Shut Down, and then in the drop-down list click Shut Down" The only part of that instruction which is correct is "Click Start." o There is no Shut Down option under Start. It's called "Turn Off Computer." o There is no drop-down list under the "Turn Off Computer" dialog. Instead, there are 3 buttons. o There is no button option under "Turn Off Computer" called "Shut Down" Instead there are three button options: "Stand By", "Turn Off", and "Restart."
