Is there anyway to change the Sleep button in Vista (on the startmenu) to shutdown? As i never put my computer to sleep besides turning it off.

Yes, in the Control Panel -> Power Options, you have to go in the Advanced Options and there you can change the behaviour of the button... It's somewhere there, I'm sure you'll find it.

Congratulations Microsoft - all those hours of work on the new shutdown button made things so easy for the user :P

Reminds me of the Shut Down button in Neptune, but that one is easier to customize in the Power Options...

It just Power Options, no Hardware and Sound option.

Try System Properties -> Advanced -> Advanced -> Settings or something like that.
