This is the second time I've tried to change this setting on a Vista-based operating system and I can't get it to work again.
OS: Windows Server 2008 SP2 (not R2) =
Microsoft Windows [Version 6.0.6002] = Vista
When I go to:
Power Options ->
Change Plan Settings ->
Change advanced power settings ->
Power buttons and lid ->
Start menu power button ->
Setting: the available combo box will only show the option
Shut down. No other options are available.
- This server is part of a domain and has not been set up by me.
- I have not yet talked with the domain admin, but as far as I could tell from googling, only Win7 has group policy options for the start menu. (And yes, OC I will talk to the domain admin to see if he has any clue - which I doubt.) (Edit: I have now talked to our domain admin, and he's got no clue either.)
- I'm responsible for this server and a local administrator but not a domain administrator.
- I switched off User Account Control (UAC) yesterday without problems.
Since I always log into this machine via RDP and this being a server, the natural choice would be the option (Log out) and not (Shut down).
What can I do to fix it or to find out why it cannot be changed?
