Customize Your Computer's Power Switch
Another solution for Windows XP users involves using the power switch on your computer — but only after you've set it to shutdown Windows first!
If you power off your computer without shutting down Windows (and letting your applications save their data and close, if necessary), you invite a whole lot of serious problems! The correct way to do this is... After a fresh reboot of the computer... in the Windows XP Control Panel
click Power Options. Click the Advanced tab. In the Power Buttons section, under "When I press the power button on my computer," select "Shutdown." ..If this is not visible on your Advanced tab, then your computer does not have the hardware capability to do this job correctly... or the capability is disabled in CMOS... Click Apply.... This sets your computer so that when you press the hardware power button it will first do a proper shutdown of Windows, and then poweroff the computer.
