    Hi Greg,

    Firstly, please don't use all capitals. This is considered to be shouting,
    and some people will not respond to a post that is in all capitals. Use
    capitals only when you need to emphasise something.
    To change the action of the default shutdown option on the start menu, do
    the following. Open 'Control Panel', 'Hardware and sound', 'Power options'.
    Click 'Change plan settings' under the selected option. Click 'Change
    advanced power settings'. Expand the 'Power buttons and lid' option. Open the
    'Start menu power button'. The current option is usually 'Sleep', but if you
    click on this, you can change it to what you like from 'Sleep', 'Hibernate'
    and 'Shut down'. As 'Shut down' is the option you require, select that. Click
    'OK' and close all other windows. If you click on your start menu, you will
    find the shutdown option is now what you require.
