In Vista, go to control panel, power options, chose what the power button does. Then you will see "When I press the power button" Then a drop down box.. Chose the option you want.

Don't remember how to do this in XP, but I think its similar.

If it's when you HOLD it down, it's in the Bios. Have a tinker, and see if there is anything realted...
