    Hibernate, Shut Down and Suspend buttons all log me out of session!!


    Greetings! Here I have a trouble whenever I want to shut down my computer, it happens that it doesn't matter if I click the Shut Down button or Hibernate or Suspend all do the same, log me out of my session and take me to the Lock Screen image that I've setted. The only way to shut down my computer from Windows is pressing the power off button on my computer and as far as I understand this strange behaviour isn't normal. So how to make all those buttons do their work properly? Over all the Shut Down button (it pisses me off!!). How can I configure that?

    Extra information about my computer:
    Windows 8 Professional (Activated), 3 Gb RAM memory, GeForce GT 430 video card, ASRock motherboard, hard drive partitioned with Arch Linux OS installed on the other partition.

    If any extra information is required just make me know. I appreciate every given help. Thank you.

    Suspend functionality is configured in the Power Settings screen in Control Panel. If you configure the advanced settings of your power profile, you can control what the buttons do, how it does it, etc...

    Sorry folks, I've found the problem now. I don't know why but I suspect that it was after the installation of the Nvidia drivers that it changed.
    What I've found is that after changing the configuration under Power Options and in a link that says Configuration of the Startup/Shutdown and Suspension buttons, I changed both Suspend and Shutdown buttons to Hibernate and afterwards to their default and then it all started working properly. I really didn't want to bother you guys but that strange behaviour sucks!
    Sorry for the inconvenience. SOLVED.
