Hi, I just moved from mac to pc last year. One thing that bothers me though is
when I am logged in and she also logs in into her account (both accounts are password protected), when it is time to turn the computer off she just click on the shut down button without waiting for the prompt to enter her password because others are also logged in.

Is there a way to bypass this annoying prompt, to just shut down directly without having to enter Admin user name and password?

I've been searching for months but I can't find answers.
QUOTE Thanks

You shouldn't need to power off… but.. I don't believe there is a way to bypass it. I think it's there for your protection, so that open projects, documents, etc are not lost when another user decides to shut down the computer.

Yep, for what reason to power off? Just let it go to sleep.

Or use log off when switching users.

I cannot be held responsible for the things that come out of my mouth.
In the Windows world, most everything folks don't understand is called a virus.
