Fastest way to turn off computer

    질문

  • What is the fastest way to turn off PC, i havent found it on this forum.  they turned off classic start menu, so how do i suppose turn off fast from within developer preview (please dont sugest to press hardware button on my PC case). Right now i§m using ctrl+alt+delete and from that menu turning off.

    By the way, its great peace of software, and its realy fast, boot time is 26s from pushing the button, and 20 of witch is just bios booting up.. so its 50% faster than my old win7, great job on that.

  • Pust the Power button located on the PC case (or similar suitable location depending on the device type).


    lol.. very funny!
    Messvk, I think the fastest way is drawing your pointer to the start button until menu appears, click on settings and click on Power button.

    Maybe you can create a Bat too that launch this command: shutdown /s /full

  • Logoff then shutdown, that's  how I do it. Doesn't take to long.
    Alternatively, you can do it through CMD. (shutdown /s /full)

    Why it's funny? It requires a least number of "clicks" from all the solutions I've heard. And if you have it in VM, then you should have similar functionality available from the virtualization UI.

  • I'm not a fan of how long it takes to kill it. With 7, I could hit "windows" key, left, enter to shut down, or WLLE to hibernate. MUCH faster, much more intuitive.

     

    This needs to be simplified.

    yes, it works if you are on laptop, but in my case, button on PC case is out of easy reach and i'm to lazy to move more than i have to :D

    Sorry If I didn't understand well.

    I think that's a good way but only in Virtualization environment, in a physical computer you can get damage by turning off manually.


    @Black, I agree with you, It has to be simplified.

  • Most modern PCs does not power off the electricity when you touch the Power button. Instead, they sent a message to the OS and the OS, depending on the configuration, usually starts the shutdown process. If you really want to break the electricity, you can hold the Power button for 5 second or so and the computer will be immediatelly powered off.

    Or, on some computers, there is a second power off switch located on the back which works as you have stated.

  • For a keyboard addict, Win+D to switch to desktop, then alt+F4 to show the shutdown options. Use up and down keys to change options if you want a restart instead, then press Enter.

  • Either disconnect the AC/DC power or remove the battery (depending on if it's a desktop or laptop). This seems to work :)

  • That option can normally be configured within the pc's power options, altho i haven't looked at that but on win8 yet.

     

    Try Right Click on Desktop>Personalize>Screensaver>Power Options and see what it comes up with.

  • I read about Alt+F4 in other posts too but...... it does not work on my system when I am in the Metro UI.

  • Alt+I on keyboard, choose Power > Shut Down.  Quickest way I've found.

  • I installed Windows 8 Preview and rebooted about 3 times after updating to make sure everything fell into their own groove correctly sort of say :)

    Anyhow I was fully aware of "drawing your pointer to the start button until menu appears, click on settings and click on Power button" but, it wasn't giving me that option for some reason. I actually left my mouse pointer hovering over the start button for at least 15 minutes uninterrupted and gave up on it. I just checked to see if it is okay right now and well, same thing, here we go. I think after a while it will give me the option to shut her down.

  • The Task Manager is also another quick and Easy way to "GET TO THE POWER OPTIONto power down the PC safely" if you find hovering the pointer over the Start button isn't giving you the option to power down the PC.

     

    I'll have to try the ALT + I   shortcut. Thanks sammyd2611    :)

    2. Hammer

    3. Water

    4. Window

    5. Pull the power cord

    Need any more suggestions please let me know.
