    Suddenly, the Shut Down and Hibernate buttons don't work on my computer. Any ideas? Google hasn't turned up any viable solutions.

    I made a shortcut on my desktop..."shutdown -s -t 00". This works when the button doesn't...is there a similar shortcut for hibernate and/or stand by?

    Some computers have those control settings in the bios.

    Yeah, my desktop does so I would imagine this notebook does. I'll take a look.

    Dude, just use the mouse, it's not like your busy and you need to save those vital 2 seconds extra that it takes to use the mouse.

    What the fuck are you talking about? I'm saying that when I CLICK the "Shut Down" or "Hibernate" buttons, nothing happens.

    Hung process of some sort that the shutdown & hibernate functions are waiting on maybe?

    Might have a virus.

    Can you still access the registry ?
