Hi, I have Windows Vista Home Premium and every time I seem to leave my pc another person logs on and then later decides to shut it down. This is extremely annoying as I have lost work and so I was wondering is there anyway to stop people from shutting down when other people are logged on the pc. I know there is a registry tweak which allows you to stop people shutting down all together but is there anyway just to stop people shutting down when other people are logged on? :)

Save all your work before leaving the computer, then if it gets shut down inadvertedly you haven't lost anything. Realistically you can't stop somebody shutting a computer down as its just as easy albeit messy to pull the plug out.

Always save your work, it's the best way...

But you could lock the computer when you leave it?
