    Power options


    A while back, Brink showed a way to setup so that you could right-click on the desktop for some power options one of which was “shutdown”. I had it working when I had the evaluation edition and liked it. I now have installed the update Pro. But, I forgot how to do it. Can anyone refresh my mind? Thanks

    That did it, Brink. Thanks—Now I can go back to the footballgame.

Those that uses RDP would know that a proper disconnection or logoff of a session is necesaary. But with WDP there is no such power options. Just the good old click on X to close connection. Hopefully in the RTM version this will get rectified.
