Default Help with vista!

wow vista has been running well on my computer except for sleep mode which has major problems but i have disabled automatic sleep mode for the time being. but i'm wondering if it is possible to change the power button in the start menu to shut down instead of sleep which mine is set as, because it has become rather annoying having to select shut down from the little drop-down menu to the right of the power button.

Make sure you turn off the automatic restore points, they can really eat away at your hard drive. I had 15+ gb of restore points on my computer until I figured out what was causing them.

^^What did that have to do with anything? At any rate auto restore is a good thing if something goes wrong, why not just change how much space is set aside?

I didn't know you could do that. Having to click that little arrow is annoying. That is good to know.
