    Does your keyboard have a power off button?

    It's quite a pickle for me to figure out what .exe file is hidden under the "Shutdown" button in the Charms bar. Most of you will probably think it's just the system32/shutdown.exe, but this doesn't seem to be the case.

    Why do I care and how do I know? I have a Razer Mamba with charging dock that needs voltage on USB when the PC is off. The problem is that when I shut the PC with a shutdown.exe shortcut, the USB voltage goes off (and no, I can't enable it in my BIOS), whereas it miraculously stays on when I turn my desktop off using the Charms bar button.

    I tried the hibernate.exe shortcut too, but this only hibernates the PC, without closing the apps - this I don't need nor want.

    I need the proper .exe file for setting up a shortcut for my keyboard so that I can close the PC with one button, instead of going through all that Metro bullshit hassle.

    I browsed the web in search for all the shutdown types used in Windows 8.1, but generally found only three methods: full shutdown, hibernate or sleep.

    Can anyone help locate the .exe corresponding to the Charms bar button? I'm puzzled and out of ideas.


    Just for s/g you could try 'SlideToShutDown.exe'

    That's why my Gigabyte MB has "always on USB battery charge" certain USB ports keep power on even after normal shutdown, Look at your MB manual, might have something like that too.
