Shutdown Windows 8 and Windows 7 in a Single Click, Using Third-Party Apps

4 Comments

  1. Thanks for this. I have a problem with my Windows 7 going into Hibernation ever since SP1. Although I still can’t get Windows to Hibernate with this app, this was the closest I have gotten in a loooooong time. The system actually almost powered down for the first time since I installed SP1. To bad the Force option in this application doesn’t work….. Not even MS has figured out why over 50% of the end users can’t hibernate their computers after installing SP1. The solution they provide now is to uninstall SP1, if this doesn’t help, reinstall the system and do not install SP1. What kind of support is that?

    Anyway, nice small app, good find.

  2. You can simple add Power Menu on your Context Menu by simply copying this little script created by Vishal. To begin copy the text below and save it double click and enjoy! This will work on windows 7 and 8CP not tested on XP. Thanks.
